Rossi spotted with new girlfriend

Italian model Linda Morselli is certainly one way to take your mind off any Ducati problems

VALENTINO Rossi has been spotted with a new girlfriend on his boat in Italy.

Rossi was photographed with 23-year old Italian model Linda Morselli on his yacht Titilla II. Morselli was a finalist in the 2006 Miss Italy contest (at just 17) but more recently, she was a grid girl for the Ducati MotoGP team at San Marino in 2011.
