Rossi, 42, will don the colours of Petronas Yamaha SRT for the 2021 FIM MotoGP World Championship season following the most challenging campaign of his career. 
The Italian finished 15th overall last season and missed two races with Covid-19. 
The seven-time champion, who switched places with Fabio Quartararo within the Yamaha structure, is as ambitious as ever heading into the opening weekend in Qatar. 
"We are all very focused on our targets to make the best we can. I think that with Franco [Morbidelli] we are a very interesting couple of riders as we know each other really well," said Rossi.

"All the whole team has a lot of motivation and I will give my maximum to achieve together the best possible result at the end of the calendar."
