Rossi: My first 30!!!

My First 30!!! 

    -Then Valentino, you are 30! All the best.
    -Thanks. 

    -Do you think that on Monday morning, when you wake up you will feel much changed since yesterday or since last week?
    -This is an important goal. When you were 20 and saw someone who was 30-year-old, you thought ‘look, that one over there, now is very old’. But, fortunately, maybe for that I do , for my job, for my life, I don’t think I’ve changed much. But I am 30… 

    -Therefore, have you changed an idea about thirty-year-old people?
    -Nowadays 30-year-old people aren’t like these ones some years ago. In the meaning that when at this age you were more matured, had family. Now, average is rise. In any case you looked ‘old’ for them, but when reach us, you don’t changed like this. 

    -What have you been for these 30 years ?
    -I’m happy with my life, very happy with my career, where I’m succeed (ad arrivare- don’t know how to translate it ). I’ve obtained great results, slit (originally: tagliato) fantastic goals. Important things about my life, instead, I haven’t made yet, I have not got children, family. But it suits me, so I have time for make it. 

    -Child, son, have you imagined that at 30?
    -Let’s say I like it. I’m youthful, demonstrate/prove less that mine years. Therefore, I’m glad. More or less I like it. 

    -Have you realized a dream of that boy?
    -Yes, but every year, in every win, also in the life, there are always new things to reach. That is what makes you become old: when you relax and say ‘I’ve made everything’. Necessity always fights. 

    -Will we keep on seeing Valentino-indomitable easy-going?
    -I feel that my spirit (di base) is always the same. I like life and entertain (myself). For sure, years went by and some things changed. Now, I’ll be out of place to go for a drive with inflatable doll. 

    -Which thing does mean turn this page?
    -30 years are important. Goal. It will need to decide thing that will happen at 40. (?) From here to 10 years, according to I won’t change much, either psychologically or physically. Afterwards, it will change most. 

    -Difficult make about classification of kind (?), but can you say three most beautiful things that have happened in that first 30 years?
    -In life for sure relationship that I have with my family, my parents and with my friends: things quite special and for that reason I’m lucky. In winning I have moments to remember. The one that I enjoy most is got balls to go to Yamaha and have won with them, too. 

    -Thing that you want to cross out?
    -Thing which I remember with sadness is Valencia 2006. Sportivamente (?) has been really hard. In life my problems with tax. Ugly page out of race. 

    -Regrets: is there anything that you want carry out, still not succeed?
    -I don’t have particular regrets, possible girls that has become. As well because I, fortunately, am not a person who remains tie with past, I always look for going forward. 

    -Person most important in these first 30 years?
    -I say my parents, Graziano and Stefania, because have made bring up much serenely and now when I’m 30, I see it, I find it again. 

    -One whom you say ‘thanks’?
    -If I am here, I’ve had in career such people as Graziano. However, I thank my group of friends, 5- 6 true friends, relationship I have with them, the thing that helps me much. 

    -It seems that Valentino-rider prevails Valentino-person.
    -Let’s say that until now I have given much time for my life as a rider. So if I can say I have done such ‘sacrifice’. My life is very right on target. Then I have done more things as a rider than a person. 

    -Is there any person to cross out?
    -No, I truly think, no. 

    -Most important lover?
    -For sure Arianna. She was my most intense story. 

    -The grandest emotion?
    -Thing that makes me pleasure the most, since mess of summer 2007, has been succeed in reorganize my life as Valentino and as well al rider exactly like I wanted. Possibility to work with people I wanted. Stimulating. 

    -The most beautiful motorcycle that you have driven?
    -Last year Yamaha. In fact 500cc is the motorcycle absolutely the most exciting, it was Honda… I had nothing against them, but I want to tie up my mind with Yamaha. But first time in Jerez in December 1999 I drove 500… Mamma mia, what a sensation! Even half of motorcycle never has excited me most. 

    -Most fascinating machine?
    -Absolutely Ferrari F1. When you go into it, you want goosebumps (?). I like rallies, Ford Focus is ‘normal’. Ferrari brings something. You feel history which is behind. Ferrari is ‘machine’ (La Macchina ). 

    -Now are you afraid less 40s and later 50s?
    -Yes. There has been phase, let’s say in 27, where I thought with fear that wouldn’t be 20 anymore, but you lost only time for pay attention to those things. 

    -What goals has given for next 10 years?
    -It’s an interrogative point about my mind. I know that I will drive motorcycle, with Yamaha, for nest 2 years. Then I’ll decide what will be. Continue and point for beat Agostini’s record or change and do other things, but what? For sure cars, rally or road? I don’t think certainly F1. 

    -Like Schumacher who races motorcycles in his 40s and falls, too? It doesn’t show peaceful at home?
    -No, no. After motorcycles I might have time for make family, but I hope for race some more. 

    -And for next 30 years?
    -Too long, I have no idea… Thing that I would like most is have child, children. 

    -For do race on motorcycle?
    -Definitely if it will be son. I wouldn’t regret even have daughter: but definitely she won’t race motorcycle, also because girl decides your thing wants to have (?). It had to be son if I would like to his drive on motorcycle. 

    -What wish would you like to receive tomorrow?
    -That next 30 years will be amusing like first 30. 

    -And what wish you make?
    -First is to continue race for some time. And then have children. 

    -Will you receive some special gift?
    -Yes, I wait for my friends and I know that they will make something. I don’t say expensive stuff. They know me and know thing I like. For 30 years, I think, they get/reach particular. 

    -What would you like to get?
    -I have no idea, not desire anything in particular. Well, it will be banal, maybe Mondiale.
