Valentino Rossi has put on hold any plans to switch to formula one, by committing to the MotoGP series until the end of 2008.

The 27-year-old Italian motorcycle star, who has tested for Ferrari and was linked with a full time switch to four wheels, will keep riding for Yamaha both this year and next.

“This leaves Valentino free to concentrate solely on the job in hand — winning back the world championship,” said Yamaha’s Lin Jarvis.

Rossi commented: “I’m very happy I renewed the contract with Yamaha until the end of 2008 so now I can just concentrate on racing this season.”
