My Formula 1 dream is now over, says Rossi
6 March 2013 – Valentino Rossi says his dreams of racing in Formula 1 are now well and truly over, having previously pondered a four-wheel switch. The 34-year-old Italian will instead focus on his MotoGP efforts where he has picked up seven world titles to date.
"Unfortunately, I'm done with Formula 1," Rossi, who tested for Ferrari on numerous occasions, explained to Sky Italia. "I will continue racing for as long as I'm competitive and I will continue to support Ferrari, (Fernando) Alonso and (Kimi) Räikkönen."
John Surtees remains the only person to become Champion on two and four wheels, having notched up several 350cc and 500cc titles before the Formula 1 crown in 1964.
