According to this report in Cycle News, Valentino Rossi was very upset everyone keeps talking about his supposed move to F1. But if you read what he said, he just confirms that he will be in MotoGP next year. All of the speculation surrounds his move in 2007 so he didn’t deny anything.
This whole move situation has to be difficult because winning in MotoGP is certainly a psychological effort. Getting sidetracked with a lot of other issues could make it very tough on Rossi next year. It would be unfortunate to turn what may be his last year racing motorcycles into less than a top notch season. We’ll see.
