These days, again, Rossi was to retire at the end of the season.
Valentino Rossi was again the subject of cheap speculations, some frustrated publications or websites desperate to get some artificial more readers for a short period of time stated again about Rossi's retirement.
The italian rider denied first time via his Twitter and then a Radio DJ called Vale to clear the things up.
Rossi was in good spirits and laughed about this rumor that appears every year again and again together with the 'Rossi will be a father' and 'Rossi will race for Ferrari'.
Then an interesting one, remember when I first told you after the Qatar opening round that Rossi did it on purpose?
Guess what, asked about that awful result, Rossi admitted it was to shake up Ducati and make them move.
Ducati is expected to bring the new engine at Silverstone and the next official test will be held at Mugello at the end of May.
