Seven-time MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi insisted Wednesday (May 20) that he has no intentions of merely bidding his legions of fans "ciao" when he steps away from the Yamaha factory team.

Rossi, 41, already knows he has lost his seat at the elite outfit for next season with 20-year-old Frenchman Fabio Quartararo taking his ride.

However, the Italian legend has a seat waiting for him at satellite team Yamaha-SRT.
