Lorenzo warns Rossi over Yamaha contract

"Valentino shouldn't decide the riders for 2011"

FIAT YAMAHA MotoGP star Jorge Lorenzo has warned off his team-mate, current MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi, over the Italian's recent spat in the press regarding the pair's Yamaha contracts.

"Valentino shouldn't decide the riders for 2011. It's Yamaha's choice, we are just employees," the Spaniard told Monday's Gazzetta dello Sport.

Rossi spoke out earlier this year against his current employers about keeping Lorenzo in the squad. In an interview Rossi said: "Yamaha have to decide between me and Jorge for 2011," said Rossi. "I have a great option to join Ducati."
