Rossi reviews successful Brno test

Having finished Sunday’s race in the Czech Republic in second place, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi completed a successful test at Brno on Monday to end the day in second place on the timesheets, just behind his teammate Jorge Lorenzo.

Rossi focused on testing various parts for his YZR-M1 and spent a productive day on track, completing 52 laps. His best time of 1'55.765s was a 0.371s margin behind Lorenzo’s fastest lap of the test, with Rossi maintaining a solid pace throughout the day.


Valentino Rossi: “At the beginning of the day it was very difficult, because the track was dry but very dirty. The lap times were also quite slow but after, when some other riders also entered the track, it started to clean the circuit and at the end it was a very good test day for me personally because we tried different things, especially different chassis and swingarms and I like them. Now we have to speak and understand when we can start to use them, but in general it has been a positive test and I was always quite strong with a good pace. At the end, during the time attack, I did a 1‘55.7, that is fast, so it was a very good day and I enjoyed it. We had two new front tyres from Michelin, but unfortunately these are for next year. These tyres are very good, I like them and I improved my lap time and also the feeling. After that we worked a bit on the software and made a small improvement, but at the end it was OK.”
