Despite deciding against the move several years ago, and dismissing subsequent speculation, Valentino Rossi has now admitted moving to Formula One with Ferrari "could happen" in 2011.

That is when the flamboyant multiple MotoGP champion's Yamaha contract will be expired.

"Yes, I am quite happy to talk about it," Rossi, 30, told the Daily Star Sunday while in Leguna Seca for the US MotoGP round.
