Monza: MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi displayed his passion for four wheels by finishing second in the Monza rally in Italy.

The 30-year-old, who won the non-world championship event in 2006 and 2007, drove well in his Ford Focus but was beaten by last year`s champion Rinaldo Capello in a Citroen.

Rossi, third in his class in a touring car race last weekend, has considered moving into rallying when his Yamaha MotoGP contract runs out at the end of next year while he is poised to again test a Ferrari Formula One car in January.
