I barely see any truth in this.

I believe i have a hinch where he would be going in MotoGP next year....Tech 3 with Factory Bike.

He's already said that the Yamaha was a beautiful machine to ride and he'd love to have a go on a Yamaha again.

Now the only satellite team to afford him would be Tech 3 as Rossi Main Sponser is Monster same as Tech 3 so in that respect they could certainly afford it as Monster would more than likely pay a big chunk of Wages as there main man on a Monster bike would be a dream for them.

Id also expect as part of the agreement that he would get a Full Factory Bike.

This is his only way to the front of MotoGP for Rossi if not i fear he would go to WSB as age is not as important there as seems in GP with all Young Guns coming through...i mean look at Checa, Biaggi and Melandri so im sure Rossi would cut it there no doubt but as said Tech 3 would be his only option in GP after this year.

Where ever he is next year im sure it is on 2 wheels in GP or WSB

"The Daily Telegraph understands that Rossi has now told his inner circle - his father, Graziano and his manager, Davide Brivio"
and Graziano or Brivio had a sudden idea and phoned Daily Telegraph? Yes, it's very likely.

The UK Telegraph is firmly at the more straight-laced end of the press spectrum here. As said earlier any 2 wheeled sport is lucky to get more than a few lines. It is certainly not one of the sensationalist publications - that's the preserve of The Sun/Mirror etc.

Not sure about the credibility of the Telegraph but I don't think Rossi would end a season like this. If not the championship, he would atleast get a handful of podiums. Also, the stain that he couldn't handle the Ducati will be too big that I don't think he will leave without removing it proper!
