Comments

Speaking to the press after the Assen race, Rossi said he was still motivated to keep racing, and he was thinking about staying for two more years after his contract runs out at the end of 2010. He also said that he was afraid of retiring, because he didn't believe he could achieve the same level of satisfaction that he gets from winning, and that he wouldn't be able to achieve that in another sport. I don't think he's going to F1 any time soon, as much as Ferrari and the Italian F1 press want him to go.
