Question Rossi to F1??!?!

Hey guys,
I was watching MotoGP yesterday, when i heard the commentators say that there was a speculation claiming Rossi may switch to F1 in 2007... So, i did a bit of search on the net and came up with this
and this..

Now what do you guys have to say about this??

Well for starters he was "only" a second of Schumi's pace when he had an outing in the Ferrari. Now, i know 1 second is a huge gap, but, for a guy who has been racing 2 wheels most of his life... i think its a good achievement.
If you ask me.... i think he'll do good if he switches to F1 or any 4 wheel format . He's a natural... he was into karting before switching to 2 wheels.

Hmmm... The Doctor 'spinning' his magic on 4 wheels also, eh...? Well, it would definitely be an interesting season with a MotoGP champion beating thee sh*t outta most of the drivers currently on track... Nt to mention his trophy section...!!

Now his Yamaha maneger has back tracked on his words and the speculation about Rossi shifting to 4 wheels is just that...mere speculations. I seriously doubt he'll be able to repeat his Moto GP success in F1 though.

The only one whos gonna be disappointed is Sete. Buggers got a better bike and he still can't keep up. After seeing how diff it was for Edwards (Rossi's team mate and former SBK champion) to keep up with Sete and Rossi, there's no doubt that the Yamaha is quick only bcoz Rossi is riding it.

Rossi in F1 would be fun (altho I am not exactly a Vale fan)...but anyone with a brain will admit that he is the best bike rider of recent times...(and one of the best of all-time)

But these rumours keep coming up and after he had a test in the winter at Fiorano...well who knows what will happen 5 years from now.

Scarlet: He already tried his hand at a rally in Britain..though he went off on a stage

Monty: as sharavan says this guy is a natural..so I think if he puts his mind to it he can succeed in any motorsport!
There have been plenty of ex bike guys doing well in F1.....recent example is 96 world champ Damon Hill

I think he even managed to topple it. It was Ford Focus right?

i think he does want to move to F1 eventually
but only when he's won enough championships so that no one else will ever get close to his record

his 2nd comment about staying in moto gp for another 10 yrs was probably out of frustration.. too many people have been harrowing him about his future

Hahaha... poor Sete... now that man (Rossi) is magiccal... how he can get a Yamaha to beat the crap outta Hondas and Ducatis and anything else that comes in his way is a HUGE mystrey to me - not to mention everyone else in the motorring world... hehe...
