Ducati is dedicated to addressing Valentino Rossi's concerns and transforming their Grand Prix program in hopes of retaining the Italian's services for 2013.
Meanwhile, Rossi has taken time to deny unattributed stories in Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper that he is planning to bail out of MotoGP even before the end of this season.
Telegraph writer Tom Cary, claiming only unnamed sources, says that Rossi could walk from Ducati as early as September after the Misano GP, and at the latest at the end of 2012.
Rossi has categorically denied the story saying, "The rumors about my retirement at the end of the year are not true. See you in Le Mans.”
Apart from Ducati's desire to continue with Rossi, no doubt subject to a more competitive bike, there is little doubt that Rossi does not want his career to end in failure.
