On the sidelines of the Catalunya MotoGP race at the Catalunya Circuit, Barcelona last weekend, surprising news emerged.
The issue is that Valentino Rossi ‘s racing team , VR46 Racing, intends to hijack the rising Moto3 racer, Pedro Acosta .
Mentioned Pedro Acosta will strengthen VR46 Racing team that will go down full in MotoGP in 2022 by using a Ducati Desmosedici.

“I read about it (hijacking Pedro Acosta from KTM), but it’s not true,” said Valentino Rossi.
“Obviously we are happy. Pedro Acosta is a new superhero, but not (interest in VR46 Racing). I think we will continue our project which is orbiting riders from the academy,” he continued.
Pedro Acosta, the leader of the Moto3 standings, has an extraordinary track record this season. He even won a race even though he started from the pitlane.
