Rossi needs Schumacher for F1 drive?

According to a report in the Italian press, MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi will only be considered for a 2007 Ferrari F1 drive if team leader, and seven times world champion, Michael Schumacher decides to continue racing next season.

"Rossi in F1, Michael decides" stated La Gazzetta dello Sport, explaining that the Italian team is only prepared to 'risk' having one new driver next season. "If Michael goes and (Kimi) Raikkonen takes his place, and is joined by Rossi, that means two drivers that are unproven at Ferrari. It is a risk Maranello doesn't want to take."

The article added that Schumacher will decide in June if he wants to extend his record breaking F1 career beyond 2006, but even if the German stays it is far from certain that Rossi will be offered a race seat alongside him.

"If (Schumacher's new team-mate) Felipe Massa continues as well as he has up to now (in testing), it will be difficult to give his seat to Rossi," added the 'paper.
