Max Biaggi has snubbed a return to MotoGP after revealing to MCN that he’s happy in WSB.

At Silverstone last weekend Biaggi’s Alstare Suzuki team stated their intention to switch to MotoGP with team boss Francis Batta sighting Biaggi as a potential rider.

The Italian last rode in MotoGP in 2005 when he was team-mate to Nicky Hayden on the Repsol Honda RCV211V.

After another troubled year he was essentially black listed by Honda, Yamaha and Michelin forcing the Roman to quit the series and sit out of racing during 2006.

Since making his return in WSB he won the opening race of the year in Qatar and currently sits in third position in the championship standings behind Britain’s James Toseland and Japan’s Noriyuki Haga.

Biaggi said: “The first time I heard anything about the team moving to MotoGP was at Silverstone. Many people have been asking me about this, but if I wanted to go back to MotoGP I had a chance to do that this year.

“I like the World Superbike championship and I think it’s very challenging. Right now I think it is better to be concentrating on what we are doing and not thinking about next year and another series.”
