Valentino Rossi has been told by Ferrari that he can test one of its cars any time he likes during his recovery period if he wants help getting back up to speed. The Italian is expected to be out of action for several weeks after breaking a leg during a fall in practice for last weekend's MotoGP race at Mugello.
Speaking in the wake of the crash, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said that his Italian team will be more than happy to do what it can to help Rossi, who tested several times for the Maranello outfit before.
"Everyone at Ferrari is with you at this difficult time," Montezemolo said in a statement wishing Rossi well. "We are sure that you will be back on track soon, even stronger than before. If, during your convalescence, you feel you would like to do some training on four wheels, then remember that the door to Maranello is always open to you."
