Valentino Rossi says he has no plans to switch to four wheels in the near future, and reckons he will be too old to race cars seriously when he retires from MotoGP.
The 30-year-old Italian has taken part in some rallies in the past and also tested for the Ferrari Formula 1 team. He admits he would like to continue competing in rallies eventually, but only when his MotoGP career is over.
"There are not many changes in a man's body between 22 and 34 so I still have some time left," Rossi was quoted as saying by the Reuters news agency. "I would consider shifting to cars, probably rallying, after that before I finally decide to take it easy."
He added: "When I finish with bikes, I might want to see some seasons in rallying. I know F1 would've been easier but by the time I finish MotoGP, I will be too old for F1."
