VALENTINO ROSSI will continue in MotoGP in 2011 but the 9-times World Champ has not said which team he will be riding for.

Rossi is in the final year of his contract with the Fiat Yamaha team. In 2009 he stated that he was not 100% sure if he would stay with Yamaha.

"This crash will not influence my choices for next year in any way," said the nine-time GP world champion, who has previously said that riding an Italian bike for an Italian team would be a 'great motivation'.

Rossi has said that he has never thought about quitting after the crash but was frustrated that he's missing races as a result of it.

"When I come back I will be in perfect shape, although it won't mean that I can win straight away," he reflected.
