Sources say that Rossi and his manager informed Ferarri Corse yesterday that he has decided to race MotoGP in 2007.
Here is another link to a big Italian article, but the online translators don't work. For all I know it says he will be racing on the moon next year.

If he can win an 800cc title he will be the only rider to win titles in FIVE classes, unless you count 500 and MotoGP as the same "premire" class.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Yamaha must be cooking up something special for the 800cc bike.

Or this could all be Bull Shit.

I would imagine he would take a paycut to go to F1. I think he would need to do a year as a test driver first.

I think he is at 15 million now plus personal sponser money and that should put him around 25 to 30 million per year.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Yeah, i just figured that just after I posted. I'm sure his rookie F1 pay would be way less than his champion MotoGP pay
