MotoGP star Rossi considers 2014 retirement

Updated: January 12, 2012

Italy’s seven-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi is contemplating retiring after the 2014 season.

Before he quits, the 32-year-old is keen to bring success to his Ducati team and wants to extend his contract before it expires at the end of 2012.

“I want to win something here, make Ducati grow and then stop.”

Last year, Rossi failed to win a MotoGP race for the first time in his career as he finished in seventh place in the championship.

He has won nine championships, seven in the premier class, including five consecutive titles from 2001-05 and two more in 2008 and 2009, riding for Honda and Yamaha.
