1It is a big problem and so I don't know for sure if I say yes or no to Ferrari.
2The work that we do during the winter is very important; we have a new bike and it's important to develop it during this time, and we start with this test.
3As for the level of spectacle of the two disciplines, I leave it to the people who watch the races to comment.
4But I could also start F1 or rallying. I love rallying much more.
5You look at Moto3, the races are very exciting. Moto2 is fantastic, and then MotoGP is boring.
6We have the 2004 M1 here for reference, which is useful. It worked well here last year; we won the race and always did fast lap times so it will be interesting to compare it to the new bike and it will help us to understand which parts have improved.
7In 2002 the Yamaha was at more or less the same level as the Honda, better in some ways, worse in others. But in the winter of last year between 2002 and 2003, Honda made a big step forward and it seemed as if Yamaha couldn't quite match that improvement.
8It's a big, big advantage because understanding what changes we might make takes time and it takes time to work out settings and to understand everything about the new machine.
9If I test the car for a year I can be quite competitive the next season.
10I have won on Honda and Yamaha so maybe it is interesting to win with a third team, Ducati, who are Italian.
11Once the races begin it's more difficult and there is never that much time for testing.
12I don't like being famous - it is like a prison. And driving for Ferrari would make it far worse.
13Maybe if Graziano make another work or another sport I wouldn't have had this passion to be a rider.
14I always enjoyed myself a lot in pre-school.
15My father raced bikes. He gave me the passion very early. I had my first bike when I was three or four years old.
16I am able to ride the bike and think clearly about strategy and tyres. I also have positive thinking. I am very constructively critical.
17I would have probably stolen cars - it would have given me the same adrenaline rush as racing.
18I'm Valentino Rossi. And I want to be a person, not an icon.
19How do Ferrari know what I'm doing next year when I don't know what I'm doing next week?
20Fortunately during my career I have won more or less everything, so I need to enjoy it to have the right motivation.
21To win the Championship in the first year will be hard. We need time to become competitive and win races.
22I was lucky. My father raced bikes. He gave me the passion very early. I had my first bike when I was three or four years old.
23In my opinion we are at the limit now, and 17 races is really too much. With all the testing that we do now, it means we're always on the bike and it's quite difficult.
24The most important thing is to have a good relationship with the bike... you have to understand what she wants. I think of a motorcycle as a woman, and I know that sounds silly, but it's true.
25Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside.
26I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same.
27Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike.
28My normal life is like being on holiday.
29To be a great motorbike racer, the most important thing is passion for the bike.
30Also, when I started racing he knew a lot of people and it was more easy for me to find the first bike, so I have a good chance for sure.
31I have a lot of energy after 2 A.M. I like to sleep in the morning. I have some problems at the start of the day.
32The great fights with your strongest rivals are always the biggest motivation. When you win easily it's not the same taste.
33I never race for records. The motivation to try to beat the record is not enough to continue. You have to enjoy it.
