MotoGP champion to test with Ferrari F1 team

Ferrari is to give Valentino Rossi another Formula One test to celebrate his MotoGP title.

The Italian team says it's a nice way to celebrate his world championship and fantastic career.

The Yamaha rider clinched his sixth title in motorcycling's top category this season and last tested a Ferrari Formula One car in 2006 when he was being seriously considered for a possible race seat.

Rossi impressed with his pace in those earlier tests but ruled out a move to Formula One, a decision he says he has mixed feelings about because he's still curious to know what he would have done.
