Well I guess at last weeks f1 race in Australia, Rossi had talks with the Toyota Panasonic F1 team. He looks to be set give "give the car a try." An F1 car is the most different to a bike because of aero grip and the emense braking capabilities. The F1 cars produce 5 g's of deacceleration do to the downforce produced!!! Heres the link from one of the best sourse of racing news. http://www.autosport.com/newsitem.asp?id=26300&s=5

Here I got from another source...

MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi is likely to test-drive a Formula One car.

The flamboyant Italian was at Albert Park last weekend and reportedly agreed with F1 team Toyota that a track-test should take-place in the next few weeks.

PANIS TRIES BIKE

Autosport magazine reports that as part of the deal, Toyota F1 veteran Olivier Panis will take to the saddle of Valentino's Yamaha MotoGP race-motorcycle.

'My first motorsport experience was in karting,' said 24-year-old Rossi.

'I've done some rallies, but I hope to try an F1 car someday.'
