Ferrari boss offers Rossi recovery help

Di Montezemelo: "Remember that the door to Maranello is always open to you"

JUST DAYS after breaking his leg during practice for Mugello MotoGP, reigning World Champion Valentino Rossi has been sent an offer of help by Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo.

The Fiat Yamaha rider, who's tested Ferrari F1 cars on numerous occasions and is at the centre of ongoing rumours about an imminent defection to Formula One, has been offered the use of the company's facilities to aid his recovery.

"Everyone at Ferrari is with you at this difficult time," di Montezemolo said on Ferrari's website. "We are sure that you will be back on track soon, even stronger than before."

The Ferrari supremo has made it clear on numerous occasions that an F1 drive is on the cards for the nine-time motorcyle world champion, should he wish to take it. Di Montezemelo continues:

"If during your convalescence you feel you would like to do some training on four wheels, then remember that the door to Maranello is always open to you."
