Valentino Rossi in F1

Valentino Rossi, Test, Mugello 2008

So Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff wants to test Valentino Rossi in an F1 car? Well, the MotoGP superstar won’t be out of his depth after testing several times with Ferrari from 2006 and 2008 (he is pictured above at Mugello).

'Il Dottore' came quite close to competing in F1 but eventually ruled out the switch on the grounds that he was already too old. What a fascinating watch this would have been!
