Rossi is the greatest motorcycle racer of all time and he will be the greatest F1 driver of all time, it's a no brainer.

The key points are 1.1 second off Schumachers lap record at Fiorano and 4.5 seconds off in 44 laps at Mugello. Pretty impressive for someone without a lot of experiance in an F1 car. If Rossi signs with Ferrari Micheal might need to start looking over his shoulder more often. Niether one of them has much competittion in their respective fields right now, it would be interesting to shake up the mix a little.



It makes you wonder if Schumacher could do even half as well on a motogp bike.

he is more than a second off pace. that is an eternity. maybe he'll successfully transition to F1, maybe not. it will be interesting.

You have to remember that Rossi was a karting champion before he switched to bikes. Many F1 racers came from karts as well. So I wouldn't say Rossi is an entire "newb" to this...But there is little question that Rossi is the best driver in ANY motorspsort..

You have to admire someone that looks for another challenge. Everyone said he couldn't win with Yamaha after he left Honda. This seems to be the next logical step for him. I admire his guts to take on a new challenge. I intially thought it would be like Michael Jordan going to baseball for a few years. But as someone has said on this board he was a karting champ..
