Rossi eyes F1 switch with third Ferrari  
Rossi considering a switch to F1 with Ferrari in 2011
(GMM)  Valentino Rossi has indicated he might be willing to switch to formula one in 2011 if Ferrari will run a third car.

At the press conference with Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone in Paris last Wednesday, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo told reporters that part of the peace deal was an indication that the works teams are prepared to field three cars apiece.

Multiple MotoGP champion Rossi, an Italian, has tested Ferraris before and a few years ago openly considered replacing Rubens Barrichello at the Maranello outfit.

The 30-year-old remains under contract to Yamaha for 2010, but amid the FOTA-FIA war, it was rumored that wherever Ferrari was headed in the near future, Rossi could be part of the plans.

"I am quite happy about it, it could happen in 2011 -- why not?" he is quoted as saying by Italian media.

Rossi indicated that Ferrari running a third car in formula one could be his opportunity to switch to four wheels.

"In 2010 I have a contract with Yamaha so it would be difficult or even impossible.  What's more, Ferrari do not have a third car and I have taken no decision about changing sport," he added.
