Rossi seeing red
When most of the MotoGP riders enjoy some well-deserved holidays and take a break from motorsport, current series leader Valentino Rossi enjoyed a two-day test at Fiorano with the Scuderia Ferrari. The Gauloises Yamaha rider already had a taste of Formula 1 last year at the prestigious Italian manufacturer test circuit.
“I wanted to get a better understanding of a Formula 1 car and I would like to thank Ferrari for giving me the opportunity to do so,” said Rossi, whose previous 4-wheel outings also included participations in rally events.
“The two days were intensive and interesting. I completed a lot of kilometres and I began to understand the handling of the car, working with the engineers and [test driver] Marc Gené. I go back to the two wheels where there is still a long way to go to the end of the season.”
Cant be too long before he farks off to the boring world of F1 to follow in the footsteps of Sir John Surtees. Wont be next year if BP is right about his new Yamaha contract.
