Jul.31 (GMM) Valentino Rossi has used Ferrari as an example of an Italian racing team that managed to emerge from a deep crisis.

Increasingly frustrated with his MotoGP outfit Ducati's lack of progress, the Italian motorcycle great said Maranello based Ferrari turned around a similar slump in a matter of mere months.

"They too were far behind at the beginning, and it was Fernando (Alonso) who made a difference, but then the team also progressed.

"But, us (Ducati), we do not improve," he told Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport.
