Valentino Rossi To Yamaha?

Henny Ray Abrams | July 31, 2012

Ducati Marlboro’s Valentino Rossi acknowledged for the first time at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix that his future will either be with his current team or Yamaha, the factory that exiled him in favor of Jorge Lorenzo at the end of 2010.

Yamaha race boss Lin Jarvis said that having Rossi re-join the team wasn’t out of the question, and that the potential sponsorship he might bring was a consideration.

“Well, until the moment that we choose who the second rider is then I would say anything is possible,” Jarvis said.

And Ducati CEO Gabriele del Torchio said that he’d had a long meeting with Rossi on Saturday, and that a decision was still a week away.
