Valentino Rossi's Yamaha contract runs until the end of 2014, while Suzuki has delayed its MotoGP return until 2015.

Suzuki's team manager is Davide Brivio - a former team boss for Rossi at Yamaha, who also acts as a personal manager for The Doctor.

Those ingredients were enough to spawn 'Rossi to Suzuki' rumours, but the seven time MotoGP champion - back at Yamaha after two winless seasons at Ducati - appears to have quashed such speculation.

During an interview with German publication Speedweek, Rossi dismisses a Suzuki move, adding: "This is my team and the M1 is my motorcycle. As long as I can fight for podiums and victories, I will continue with Yamaha."

Rossi - who won three MotoGP titles for Honda before switching to Yamaha in 2004 - took his first race win since 2010 at June's Assen round.
