Rossi tests again with Ferrari, August 2nd 2005
Is Rossi a season and a half away from F1? 8/2/2005
Unexpectedly, and with the official announcement of his new contract with Yamaha for 2006 just announced, Valentino Rossi tested a Ferrari F1 car again today, apparently to confirm more accurately his potential in Formula One car racing.
The secret test started this morning at Fiorano, in Italy, at the private Ferrari test track, but no information was released about Rossiís performance in the F2004 Ferrari in which he spent many hours. The rumor is that this second test was set on Rossiís specific request to the team following the first test he had been given on April 21, 2004.
In fact, Ferrari and its president Mr. Luca di Montezemolo after the first test last year, agreed to give Rossi another opportunity to drive a Ferrari F1 car in the future. Recently this year Rossi said that his future would only be on two-wheels, but the surprise test today seems to indicate that the Italian phenomenon hasnít really made a decision yet on what will happen after his Yamaha contract expires at the end of 2006. Or is he just haveing some fun during the summer break?
Itís no secret that Ferrari are warm to the idea of having the immensely popular MotoGP star on their team in the future, and as of right now there are no drivers under contract to Ferrari after the end of 2006 F1 season. Only time will tell if one of them will be Valentino Rossi.
