Do you want to know some curiosities of Valentino Rossi:
The number 46 takes him through his time of the mini bikes. Also because on one occasion he saw a Japanese pilot in Suzuka rolling through water like lightning, which impressed him. This same number was worn by his father when he won his first GG.PP in 1979.
There are several theories about the nickname 'Il Dottore'. Even one that points out that it was Crivillé who called him that because of his ability to diagnose racing. The most reliable of all is that one day he began to look at the telephone directory of his city and saw that the vast majority of his neighbors who were named after him were doctors. In Italy, apart from the telephone, the profession is also included in this guide. Rossi was not going to be less and from that moment he called himself “Il Dottore”.
As a curious fact, on his belly he has a turtle tattooed with the number 46 in memory of one he had in his childhood.
