Rossi: I still have time

Rossi: I still have time

The MotoGP World Champion features in the New York Times after he states his intention to remain racing on two wheels for some time yet.

During the first visit of his career to India at the weekend, Valentino Rossi has reiterated that his desire for more action on two wheels has not diminished after his ninth World Championship title in 2009.

Rossi spent the weekend in New Delhi where he met members of India Yamaha Motor’s senior management, and spoke to the Indian media. His statements on his future have been echoed by the New York Times, who have reported on the Italian’s plans to try and add to the titles he has already collected throughout his career in MotoGP.

“There are not many changes in a man's body between 22 and 34 so I still have some time left,” Rossi said. “I would consider shifting to cars, probably rallying, after that before I finally decide to take it easy.”

“When I finish with bikes, I might want to see some seasons in rallying. I know F1 would've been easier but by the time I finish MotoGP, I will be too old for F1.”

Rossi has taken part in many rally events in the past, most recently in November when he finished second in the Monza Rally.
