An overwhelming majority of readers have backed Valentino Rossi's decision to join Ducati in 2011 as he prepares for a new chapter to his illustrious MotoGP career.

Rossi ended months of speculation by confirming he would team up with the Italian manufacturer for the next two seasons in a deal that will conclude a hugely successful seven-year tenure with Yamaha.
