Yamaha and Suzuki remain hard at work in Estoril

The Marlboro Yamaha and the Telefonica Movistar Suzuki teams stayed in Estoril for testing, before packing their equipment for Rio, where will be held the 12th round of the MotoGP World Championship.

Three riders were in action on Monday - Carlos Checa and Max Biaggi for Yamaha and Kenny Roberts for Suzuki. The two riders of the british team were due to be on duty, but Sete Gibernau went back to Barcelona right after the race in order to recover as quickly as possible, as he crashed out of the lead with three laps to go.

After a rain-soaked weekend, the teams decided to wait until the track was dry, and they only began to work after midday. Carlos Checa lapped less than the two other riders ; during nearly two hours, he worked on suspension, in order to collect data for the next season. His team mate Max Biaggi spent one hour more on the track. Kenny Roberts was the most prolific as he had to test new parts sent by the Japanese factory for the Grand Prix held in Brno a fortnight ago.
