Happy Birthday Valentino!

Today, Thursday February 16, marks the 27th birthday of five times MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi.

The current Camel Yamaha superstar made his world championship debut in the 1996 Malaysian 125GP and went on to win his first world title with 11 wins in his second 125cc season.

The Italian then graduated to the 250cc class, still with Aprilia, in 1998 and repeated that pattern by taking the crown at his second attempt (with nine wins).

Rossi then switched to Honda when he moved to the premier 500cc class in 2000 and made an instant impact by winning two races and finishing runner-up to Kenny Roberts Jr - then, once again, claimed the title in his second season.

The #46 has retained the MotoGP World Championship ever since - despite a switch to Yamaha in 2004 - collecting 53 wins, 81 podiums, 31 poles and 45 fastest laps in the process.

'The Doctor' is currently testing at Sepang in Malaysia.

If people don't regulate themselves, others will do it for them.
