Valentino Rossi has spoken out after his future was recently questioned, and speculation circulated that he may be joining Suzuki once his MotoGP contract ends with Yamaha.

Rossi is currently contracted with Yamaha until the end of next year, which coincides with Suzuki's intended 2015 return to MotoGP.

This has prompted speculation that the seven-time Grand Prix World champion will switch teams and join Suzuki when the time comes and his contract ends.

However, he recently spoke out to address the rumours and show his commitment to Yamaha.

Rossi told Speedweek: "This is my team and the M1 is my motorcycle. As long as I can fight for podiums and victories, I will continue with Yamaha."

He first joined Yamaha in 2004, where he stayed for seven years, winning the MotoGP championship four times over that period, before leaving in 2010 to join Ducati.

Rossi then rejoined Yamaha for the 2013 season, after winning no races and posting only three podium finishes during his two years with Ducati.

The 34-year-old is currently in 4th place in this season's MotoGP leaderboard, with one win and four podium finishes so far this season.
