Rossi to stick to bikes

Yamaha’s MotoGP team boss Lin Jarvis thinks Valentino Rossi will decide against switching to Formula 1 now that he has rookies Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa to give him a run for his money.

"We have an understanding together when that decision will be and we fully respect that decision which ever he chooses," Jarvis told Motor Cycle News.

“We all know that Valentino is truly a motorcyclist at heart and I think that seeing the new young riders coming into the sport, and not having it easy at the moment is every reason to continue his motivation.

“So if anything I hope this current situation will give him more motivation to stay."

In truth, however, Rossi's 'decision' might entirely depend on the movements of Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen, who are both tipped for a red-colored ride next year.
