Whoops, that should read Rossi Re-Signs SIX-time world champion Valentino Rossi will ride for Yamaha in MotoGP next season after extending his contract until the end of 2006, the Yamaha Motor Company has announced. The news ends speculation the 26-year-old Italian, who is well on course for a fifth consecutive MotoGP world title, might switch to Formula One or rallying in the short-term. Rossi joined an uncompetitive Yamaha works team from dominant Honda at the end of the 2003 season, and immediately upset his former employer by claiming the 2004 championship. "I am so happy to be able to announce the continuation of my relationship with Yamaha," Rossi said. "Last year was magic, to win my first race with Yamaha, and then to win the championship ... it just made sense to stay with Yamaha for another year." Reuters.
