Valentino Rossi has expressed interest in driving a third Ferrari in Formula One.

The multiple champion of MotoGP racing has long been linked with a switch to F1 with the Italian team, who have been pushing strongly for a change of rules to allow three-car entries.

Italian Rossi, 31, is quoted by La Gazzetta dello Sport as indicating he does not want to enter Formula One as one of Ferrari's two main drivers.

"To have a strong team like Yamaha's (in MotoGP), Ferrari should hire Sebastian Vettel alongside Alonso," he said.

"I would like to explore the possibility of a third car for myself," added Rossi.
