Valentino Rossi: No Decision Yet

Paul Carruthers | July 26, 2012

If Valentino Rossi knows for whom he will be racing for next year, he’s not ready to share the news yet. If you take him at his word, his mind is far from made up.

And with Ben Spies leaving Yamaha, word of the MotoGP legend joining Jorge Lorenzo on the team is rumor number one.

“The situation is quite clear and I still don’t decide because it is a bit too early,” Rossi said. “I wait something… I spoke a lot with Ducati for next year and still waiting for some of the details and some of the important things on the contract. I also get some other option for next year, but I think the situation will be more clear in the next weeks and in the summer break I will decide for next year.”
