MotoGP » Rossi fast, but F1 switch 'fun but not feasible'


Record-breaking multiple MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi re-affirms the conviction that he could succeed in F1 were he to make the switch after impressing on day two of his Barcelona test with Ferrari - but his four-wheeled exploits will never be anything more than just 'fun', he stresses

marky - he's not good at filing taxes! ahahahahhaha! I'm a huge an of his, but you left the door wide open for that joke :)

Impressive stuff by Rossi once again. If Lance Armstrong can come back at 34 or whatever after 3 years off, and Schumacher can come back at 41 (not sure how he will perform yet), and Bayliss can win a World Title at 38... then Rossi won't be too old at the end of 2010 to make the switch!!

Yes, he won't be too old to make the switch, but I would rather that Vale remain in MotoGP until he feels he can no longer compete at the championship level.

Yamaha-M1 Fan - I'd wholeheartedly agree with you if we were still in the 990 era, but the 800 era is only ever so slightly less boring than F1 :( There's only been a few races during this era that have been good that I can think of off the top of my head. Laguna '08 and Catalunya '09 immediately come to mind.

I am not impressed. It's nothing more than a fanfare. As usual, he will come out with yet another of his many excuses as to why a switch is 'not feasible'. In reality he knows that he has no chance, and will likely have his @ss kicked in the real races. I am happy to be proved wrong though. That would at least have rid motogp of him.

If he stays with Yamaha, as both Rossi and his dad have hinted at, while in Barcelona, he could have 3 more years at the top in MotoGP, then step into a Ferrari seat for 2013 aged 33. I think a lot of fans would love to see him on a Ducati, but perhaps he'll save the homeboy connection for F1.?

So, in summary: tantalising prospect but it's not going to happen. Why do we go through this annual charade and waste of time? For Christ's sake we all know he can DRIVE an F1 car by now - so let's see him RACE one!

We go through this annual "charade" because Rossi just likes to go fast in, or on, anything he can get his hands on. If you were given the opportunity to drive an F1 car, would YOU turn it down.
