Valentino Rossi confesses to concerns that the MotoGP season will face further delays, the Spanish Grand Prix on May 3 currently in place as the season opening race after the first four races have already been pushed back.
MotoGP have already postponed races in Qatar, Thailand, Argentina and the United States, but Rossi said on an Instagram Live feed that he was concerned that more races could fall by the wayside.
"In my opinion, one has to realistically say that the races in Jerez, Le Mans and Mugello will be very difficult because they are supposed to take place in May," Rossi told singer Lorenzo Jovanotti.
"I don't know what the situation will be in May and whether the conditions for motorcycle racing will be met."
Rossi was hoping to evaluate his ability to keep pace with champion Marc Marquez during the initial part of the 2020 season, the Yamaha rider no longer having a ride with the factory team for 2021 and believed to be considering retirement.
