Another Ferrari / Rossi story / Yamaha

Thought some might be interested... from planetf1.com...


Yamaha fear losing Rossi to Ferrari
Sunday 24th January 2010

Yamaha MotoGP team boss Davide Brivio admits he's "worried" that Valentino Rossi's lap times during his Barcelona test could inspire the Italian to leave MotoGP.

This past week, Rossi spent two days testing an F2008 at the Barcelona circuit where the MotoGP Champ put in some impressive times. The Italian's 1:21.900 was just 0.087s short of the pole position set by Kimi Raikkonen at the 2008 Spaniash GP.

And although Rossi stated after the team that he has yet to decide his long-term future, Brivio fears it could be in Formula One.

"I have to be worried about these excellent times because Valentino really could get the desire to change sport," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Brivio added that the "greatest danger" Yamaha now face with regards to Rossi, is not that he'll leave for rivals Ducati, it's that he'll leave for "Ferrari."

Dayum. Crazy how well he's adapting to the cars.
Would hate to see him leave though.
Would be a huge loss to the motorcycle racing.

the lap times quoted seem to change everytime I read of his latest Ferrari test,
on the first day he was 5 seconds off!!!
and I've seen his fastest lap over the test quoted as two tenths off!!
wish we could get the official times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why aren't Ferrari releasing them??
I suspect because they don't want the rest of the F1 paddock to know how good he is all the time there is a slim chance of him swapping workplaces!

The lap times are apples and oranges though. Kimi was running the grooved slicks and Rossi was on full slicks, for example. But nonetheless, just to be in the same ballpark is amazing.
