MotoGP » Ferrari 'would do everything' to get Rossi into F1

Ferrari has redoubled its efforts to convince record-breaking multiple MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi to switch from two wheels to four - with Luca di Montezemolo revealing he 'would do everything' to get the FIAT Yamaha star into a third scarlet machine in F1 2011

Get lost, Luca. The last thing Rossi needs is being distracted by anyone trying to get him into F1. He has his work cut out with Stoner and Lorenzo.

And Luca di Montezemolo's presumption in saying 'When he wins this year's MotoGP, enough is enough - he must also win in Formula 1' simply beggars belief. Who does he think he is, Rossi's Dad? Who sets Rossi's goals in life anyway?

Luca di Montezemolo is a blinkered, arrogant fool. He sums up everything that is stale and rotten in F1.

A prima donna in prima donna land. A perfect match made in heaven.

Ferrari and F1 see it as a marketing tool to revive a boring good as dead series but Rossi might think differently since he won't be able to control what his "only" team mate gets get in terms of updates unless Ferrari is willing to kiss his ass so bad as yamaha does. Next thing you know he'll be saying he needs Mercedes parts to win. :rolleyes:

It would be great to have Rossi in F1, but i doubt it will happen. His heart is in Moto GP, and i can see him wanting to beat ago's all time record of wins, albeit somewhat of a long shot.

Must be a slow news day for Crash, to bring this up yet again!!!!!

But if Luca wants him, you never know......

If they offered him Schumi-esk pay cheque, and he wins the Moto GP title this year...... Never say never :)

Would be great to see him battle against Hamilton, Alonso, Button, Vettel and co, and bring another great character into F1, but he might feel he's a little too old to really challenge for wins firstly and championships........
