Marlboro Yamaha Team conclude tests in Valencia
Marlboro Yamaha Team today completed their second and final day of testing at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia. Max Biaggi and Carlos Checa have enjoyed sunny conditions as they worked on set-up and tyres for the new chassis which debuted in Italy last week.´I am still a little tired from racing in Mugello but I am happy with the work we have completed here,´ said Biaggi, who finished second at his home race. ` In some ways, yesterday was more important for the team than for the riders as we were trying such a wide range of settings so we can understand which direction to go in with the new chassis´. Checa was also in positive mood regarding the progress made in the chassis and engine of his M1 machine. ´We have swapped to a new engine and haven't had the same problems we experienced in Mugello. This was our first chance to play around with settings on the new chassis and we have found a good setting for the engine braking´.
