Yamaha asked racing fans worldwide: "If you could ask Valentino Rossi anything, what would it be?" We then sat the 9-time World Champ down to pick 12 questions out of a helmet. Here are his answers.


Nicky Hayden announced that he will definitely leave Ducati motoGP for the following year. One option is that the 2006 world champion will ride in WSBK and that could be on a Ducati or Bmw. 
The other developing story is that Honda wants Cal Crutchlow, taking the place of Stefan Bradl next year. 

At the meantime, because the battered Lorenzo and Crutchlow had their medical tests for the American motoGP, there was no option to create a humorous  promotional video like “One day at the office” etc. Instead, Valentino and Bradley Smith were given the task to prepare some pizzas for the Yamaha USA headquarters, which sounds like another Top Gear assignment without cars though! Here is Vale¢s interview before the American motoGP.
