Valentino Rossi will have another test outing in a Ferrari Formula 1 car later this month.
Speaking at the Wrooom press conference at Madonna di Campiglio, Domenicalli said Rossi would test an older F1 car in Barcelona at a two-day test on January 20th, as a reward for clinching his ninth world motorcycle championship.
Rossi drove the same car in November 2008 as a reward for winning the MotoGP title, and added a seventh top-level motorcycling crown in ‘09.
Domenicali refused to rule out the possibility of Yamaha’s Rossi switching racing codes.
“Never say never. There has been a lot of discussion about a third car and this could be an interesting improvement,” said the Ferrari boss.
Domenicali also announced the season’s new car would be unveiled on January 28 and insisted that the team has worked extensively on reliability issues.
