After last week confirming that he would not move to Formula 1, Valentino Rossi has confirmed that he will be staying with Yamaha for 2007. This will be the first year of the new 800cc bikes, and Rossi is keen to stay with the team that has brought him so much success. You can find the official Yamaha Racing press release here.
Crash.net have an interesting quote from Rossi:
- "In the future I'm sure that I will do car racing, but maybe not Formula 1."
- The other car which Rossi tested this winter was a works WRC Subaru. My money is on The Doctor going to WRC Rallying in 2009.
