Seven-time MotoGP premier class champion Valentino Rossi will be aiming to add another feather in his hat by switching to Ducati for 2011. The Italian has won the championship a record nine times and has etched his name in the top rungs of motorsport. He made his first appearance in the 125cc class in 1996 and won the title in only his second year. He then moved to the 250cc category where he finished runner-up in 1998 and clinched the title a year later - a feat he repeated in the 500cc category in just two years. After that, he won four consecutive titles in the premier class. Over the last five seasons Rossi has won the title twice, but 2010 was a disappointment after he broke his leg early in the season... making him all the more hungry for 2011.
