Not to be outdone by Michael Schumacher, Valentino Rossi has again been seen testing the Ferrari F1 car at Mugello in Italy.
Rossi set a fastest time of 1:22.550, which is about 1.5 seconds off the pace which puts him one up on Michael Schumacher on the WSB at Magny-Cours who was about 5 seconds off the pace. However Valentino's knowledge of Mugello must not be discounted, as he has won several races at this circuit in the past.
Rossi commented that he could have been a good F1 driver if he had switched to 4 wheels when he first tested for Ferrari in 2005.
Yamaha who have renewed Rossi's MotoGP contract for the 2009 season, said that Valentino can do whatever he likes in his spare time.
