Being in motorsport and having Rossi as your surname invites a bit of intrigue. But the American namesake of the MotoGP star is "cool" about the confusion. Wherever Alexander Rossi goes, the young American is flooded with queries about his relationship to the multiple MotoGp world champion Valentino . "I get asked if I am his cousin or brother, but no I am not," said the 18-year-old Californian. "It is quite a cool name to have though."

MotoGP icon Valentino Rossi has suggested he may yet continue his career beyond 2018 if he continues to prove competitive at the highest level. A seven-time world champion in the premier class, Rossi sits third in this year's standings - just seven points behind leader Andrea Dovizioso - after claiming victory in Assen last weekend. "I will decide next season, the beginning of next season – but if I'm still competitive and able to win, I want to continue. "When you have a good result everything is more easy, but the passion for riding the motorcycle and being in the sport at the top level is great.

From 2002 to 2008 John Hopkins started in the MotoGP and met Valentino Rossi among others. While Hopkins' premier-class career began with the end of the Kawasaki factory team in the 2008 season, Rossi remained in the sport and will be completing his 24th season in the World Cup in 2019. Even at the age of 40, Rossi still has the will to compete with the world leaders.

The fact that Rossi, apart from his injury in the 2010 season, has never seriously injured has contributed significantly to this. "Yes, that's clearly the case," Hopkins agrees in an interview with 'Motorsport-Total.com'.

Likewise, VR46 has numerous credible and heavyweight feats to his name that make him a fair nominee for the GOAT. The legion of fans he has across the globe, is probably more than anything else anyone has ever had , since the inception of not just MotoGP but motorsport itself. However, I believe there is one guy in particular who commands much more than awards, titles and championships. #27, Casey Stoner. I have never witnessed any other athlete coming back to the the sport after 5 years and decimating the reigning champions on the same field on the same machine.

Rossi has been around since the Dinosaurs (almost), and as such has managed to accrue such a huge fanbase that Rossis fans almost swamp all the other fans for all the other riders combined. Marquez has had to work really, really hard to be Champion. This is a very personal answer, after following the sport for over 10 years I could see that there is a clear favouritism towards certain teams and riders. From stats the career of Marc Marquez is unbelievable. But much of his victories came on a very competitive Honda, for this reason many fans believe that he might not be as good as it seems.

"He has had no major injuries in his career and that physically allows him to continue doing what he does, even at 40 years old. In addition, he regularly competes with younger drivers at his ranch It keeps him mentally young, "recognizes Hopkins.

"Apart from that, I have never met another driver who has so much passion and embodies as much passion for this sport as he does. This allows him to still be in the lead at his age," explains the US -American and states: "He still just enjoys driving."

The 2019 season is a tough test for Rossi. The Italian, who has been spoiled for success, has not been able to win for more than two years. "Sure, things are not going quite so well for him at the moment. But I think he just has to find his trust in the motorcycle again. Then he will be at the top again. In any case, I see no reason why he isn't one more , should be competitive for two years, "said Hopkins.
