Drudi created a special one-off helmet that was raffled off this week, with participants asked to donate to the organization.

Rossi, a nine-time world champion, was left shaken after Franco Morbidelli's cartwheeling Yamaha, travelling at around 300 km/h (187mph), flew across the track just centimetres in front of him.

Fabio Quartararo Is Ready For The Challenges Of 2020

The Frenchman will be called to deal with the astronomic pressure to prove that Yamaha made the right choice to contract him to its official factory team for the 2021 and 2022 seasons, and to conquer the hearts of the Valentino Rossi fans as he will take the Doctor’s seat.

Morbidelli and the Ducati of Johann Zarco had collided just seconds before the riders slipped through an early turn at Spielberg on lap eight of the race. Both men were unseated.

Zarco's Ducati also bounced across the track and came desperately close to hitting Rossi as well as Vinales, who was just ahead of him.

"It was very scary. All four riders, but especially me and also Maverick, were very lucky," Rossi said.

The veteran argued that being aggressive was good, "because everybody tries to do the maximum".

"But for me we don't have to exaggerate, because we need to remember that this sport is very dangerous."

Rossi added: "You need to have respect for your rivals, especially at a track where you're always going at 300km/h."

Valentino Rossi Interview After Jerez MotoGP Podium

  Valentino Rossi Interview After Jerez MotoGP Podium Valentino Rossi Interview After Jerez MotoGP PodiumCan you imagine his feeling when the numbers began to go against him? Last year Rossi stepped on the podium only twice (in Argentina and Texas), while his teammate, 25-year-old Maverick Viñales, scored two wins and a second place, and 21-year-old Fabio Quartararo scored five podiums in 2019 and two victories in a row this year.

Soon after 'Doctor Who’s' appearance in 1963, novels surrounding the series started to appear. The first ever novelization came out on 12 November, 1964, almost exactly a year after the first episode came out. Since then over 150 novelizations and 200 spin-off books have been published, including

A drone was just three feet away from hitting a passenger plane coming in to land at Liverpool John Lennon Airport earlier this year, in what is

Rossi questioned the manoeuvring of Zarco, who, he said, went  wide in braking, slamming the door on Morbidelli, a protege of Rossi's rider academy, VR46, who had no chance to brake.

"We were very lucky, but we hope this type of incident is a lesson for riders to improve their behaviour in the future," Rossi said, hinting that Zarco would be facing even more scrutiny had there been a casualty.

"I spoke with Franco, he is okay, he is trying not to think, but when he thinks, he too feels scared.

"What makes the difference on this occasion is that nobody got hurt, all riders are okay, so this changes the situation.

"If something bad had happened, it would have been completely different."

Zarco, dubbed "almost a murderer" by Morbidelli, was quick to claim he was innocent, insisting his manoeuvre was "not done on purpose".

The MotoGP drama followed a sickening crash in Sunday's earlier Moto2 race when Malaysia's Hafizh Syahrin ploughed head-on into the bike of Italian Enea Bastianini, another VR46 graduate, which was lying in the middle of the track after a fall.

Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Goes Solo In 2020

  Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Goes Solo In 2020 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Goes Solo In 2020This year’s run will, quite literally, be a singular one; the 2020 edition of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will have riders going at it solo (or with a pillion) instead of clustered in a massive pack of cycles, though it still will be with the goal of bringing together the motorcycle community as well as raising funds for Movember, the men’s health charity. So all riders will still ride on the same day for the same cause, but this time they won’t be traveling en masse—a twist that DGR refers to as “Ride Solo Together”—as a response to the current challenges around the world from the pandemic.

Rossi's Factory Yamaha team director Massimo Meregalli said both incidents were "heart-in-the-mouth moments for all spectators, but especially for the riders".

"We are so thankful that all riders involved are relatively okay."

Meregalli went on to praise both Rossi and Vinales for having the nerve to restart after such a horrifying near-miss.

"Valentino didn't let any of it faze him, and he got down to business as usual during Race 2," he said, Andrea Dovizioso on a factory Ducati going on to take the honours for the second year running.

"Normally, fifth is a decent result, but under these circumstances it's an incredible achievement that only top riders can manage."

Racing had made for "a very eventful day", Meregalli continued.

"But we'll take a deep breath and keep pushing. We need to have a good look at all the data, because next week we'll have a rematch here in Spielberg."
