Sir Moss is one of my heroes. Although I have never seen him driving, I have read a lot about this charming person. I fully agree with his opinion on this one! F1 circus becomes a hostile and very negative environment fur such a flamboyant character such as Rossi is. He should stick to two wheels and then, after he has no motivation at all, may be leave to WRC. But he absolutely does not fit between such boring fellas such as Raikkonen, Hamilton etc. MOTOGP these days is a level of its own, way above the F1.

Moss has a point. He is too much of a character for F1. In bikes, the riders all have respect for each other due to the danger involved but unfortunatley we don't really see that too much in F1.

Stick to bikes Rossi, and a bit of rallying. :)

I agree with Stirling. I was at the Festival of Speed. How many F1 stars did I see? Jenson Button. And he was too far up his own *rse to stop and talk to his fans. Instead he jumped on a golf caddy and was whisked away without stopping to talk to anyone or sign autographs.
Rossi is way above these boring snobs called F1 drivers.

Moss is right. Vale would not be able to be himself. Those who saw the last F1 GP would have seen the winning driver being ushered away from his team who he wanted to celebrate with. He had only just got out of his car and 30 seconds later was prevented from reaching his team. F1 have bannished any display of personality from the sport. Vale took at least 10 minutes on his slow down lap on Sunday, the F1 organisers would no doubt fine him for such an act.

I can't see Rossi moving to F1 unless he has the best equipment - something that Ferrari doesn't have right now. Why would he want to go from superstar to mid-pack overnight?

I agree too!

Rossi would be depressed under the "shine but fake" F1 environment. He would have to be too serious as everybody in this unemotional sport. Also, he would be deadly bored if he had to overtake during pit-stops, as this the norm in F1.
We want him fighting and laughing, as he enjoys it.
