Ferrari to test Rossi once more

Thu, 26 January 2006, 03:13

Ferrari has confirmed that Valentino Rossi will be testing a Ferrari alongside Michael Schumacher in Valencia when that round of testing kicks off next week..

While Rossi has tested with the Maranello squad before, this three-day test indicates a new level of interest by Ferrari in the multiple MotoGP champion.

Amidst rumours that Yamaha’s tobacco sponsorship would prevent Rossi from testing with the scarlet squad, the enigmatic Italian will be driving the F2004 car in the same test session with seven-times champion Schumacher and Brazilian Felipe Massa, both driving the new 248 F1. You have to wonder if Rossi and Massa will chat much after Massa’s musings about the Italian’s prospects in F1 earlier this month…
