Valentino Rossi has every faith in new MotoGP crew chief David Munoz as he believes the young Spaniard brings more potential to the team.

Munoz, who guided Pecco Bagnaia to the Moto2 crown, has replaced Silvano Galbusera, himself a replacement for the legendary Jerry Burgess. Galbusera is now working with Jorge Lorenzo in the test team.

“We did the winter tests together, so Valencia, Jerez, Malaysia and Qatar, and the first impression is very positive,” said Rossi.

“He has a different way of working, because David doesn’t have a lot of experience but is a very young chief mechanic.

I feel good because he has a very good approach, he is always very quiet and also already has a good relationship with the rest of my team, all my mechanics.

“The atmosphere in the team is very positive because everyone is very happy. So, this is for sure a help very much for the results. Also, from the technical point of view, he is very ready for anything.

“He knows the bike, he worked during the winter to be ready, and I’m very curious to make a race weekend together because I think we have more potential than last year.”
