Valentino Rossi's YZR-M1 will carry a one-off livery for the Grand Prix of Catalunya this weekend in celebration of the European Football Championships, which begin on Sunday. The championship leader's bike has been specially painted in the style of the shirts of the Italian national team, the 'Azzurri', ahead of their opening game against Holland on Monday. Rossi will also wear leathers designed in the same vein and even his famous number 46 has undergone a change for the weekend.

The special livery of the Fiat Yamaha Team star was officially unveiled at 09.50 in the pitlane of the Montmelo cicruit just before first free practice this Friday.
