Rossi signs Monster Energy contract

Rossi signs 2.5 million sponsorship deal with Monster Energy
Photo: Gigi Soldano

Responding to Kawasaki's MotoGP withdrawal, Monster Energy has shifted its sponsorship budget to eight-time world champion Valentino Rossi. The two-year deal is worth 2.5 million ($3.3 million), with an extra 500,000 should Rossi when another championship. It's not currently known how this new sponsorship will affect Rossi's deals with existing sponsor FIAT, nor how it will alter the look of his helmet, bike and leathers. We expect details later this week when Monster Energy will issue a formal statement.

I meant that Monster paid 2.5 million Euros to Rossi for that small decal on the side of the helmet.
The deal with Tech 3 was a separate deal than this one.

I know the helmet isnt $3,000,000. I was just hoping his use of the "M" claw would have looked cooler than that
