After all of the speculation about Valentino Rossi jumping to Formula 1 due to his multiple tests with the Ferrari team, Rossi himself says no.
No Formula One, at least for the moment. I’m staying with bikes. … I will carry on racing in MotoGP for a while yet. … I believe my work in motorcycling is not yet finished: I still have so much to do and will carry on in MotoGP for a while.
It would be interesting to know if his start this year has had any effect on the decision, maybe he wants to concentrate on the job at hand and get back to winning.
Fernando Alonso, current F1 champ, remarked:
Good. Like this we don’t talk anything more about him
Class act, that guy. Maybe the challenge Rossi offered and he never accepted tweaked his nose just a bit.
Now we’ll get to see what Rossi can do on the new 800s next year.
