During an interview with the BBC, Valentino Rossi warned that Yamaha must choose between re-signing him or team-mate Jorge Lorenzo for the 2011 MotoGP season. “Yamaha have to decide between me and Jorge for 2011,” he said. “I have a great option to join Ducati.” Lorenzo has been Rossi’s closest rival this year, only losing the title to nine time world champion Rossi at the penultimate round of the season. Rossi has repeatedly stated his displeasure at developing a bike that will also benefit his closest championship rival. Both Rossi and Lorenzo will remain at Fiat Yamaha next season.
