Valentino Rossi to announce Ducati move at Catalunya?

I had heard myself from our behind the scenes at the MotoGP Assen from a member of the Fiat Yamaha team that Valentino Rossi would be announcing a stay or go decision with Yamaha at Barcelona this coming weekend. According to MCN, however, the announcement will be more go than stay, with Rossi in red in 2011.

Hardly a “shock deal with Ducati” after all the rumours, we’re by now unsurprised by the news. In fact, we’ll be more surprised if Rossi decides to stay with Yamaha and although the Doctor often enjoys playing the least suspected hand, it will be difficult on this occasion. According to the reports, Rossi is moving due to disputes over his contract with Yamaha and his refusal to continue riding with Jorge Lorenzo as his team-mate.

The same figure of 15 million euros, which we’ve mentioned in our Rossi to Ducati rumours, has been nominated and a MotoGP anonymous insider has been quoted as saying:

“I know for sure that Rossi will go to Ducati next season. The deal has been done. One month ago it seemed impossible to imagine this, but Rossi will be in red next year.”
