Rossi plans another Ferrari F1 test

A Ferrari F1 test for January is scheduled after Valentino Rossi has his request accepted by Stefano Domenicali.
Valentino Rossi is planning to have another outing in a Ferrari Formula 1 car next year after reportedly having his request accepted by Stefano Domenicali.

Having wrapped up another MotoGP title this season with Fiat Yamaha, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Rossi could be back in an F1 car as soon as January.

The Italian has already tested for Ferrari on a number of occasions, most recently towards the end of the last year, while rumours of him making the jump to the sport have been persistent ever since he expressed an interest in making a four-wheel switch.

For the moment though, Rossi, whose Yamaha contract runs out at the end of the 2010 season, insists his future is in MotoGP, with this test coming after apparently texting his request to Ferrari team boss Domenicali.

IF he did switch (possible - but remote) it would be the BEST thing for F1 EVER! As for potential for success - he has more talent and carisma in his little finger than most F1 drivers. Unfortunately MotoGP would suffer as a consequence. Whatever he does - he IS brilliant beyong question and one of the very best champions in motorsport ever IMHO. Go Rossi! Khushy
