Poor weather hampers Rossi's F1 test

The highly-anticipated encounter between MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi and the top F1 drivers at the Valencia circuit in Spain was reduced to little more than a taster, as the poor weather hampered the Italian testing schedule with the Scuderia Ferrari.

Rossi could not even complete a single sighting lap at the end of the day as intermittent rain and low temperatures meant that the track conditions were too unstable to do any significant testing. Rossi left the pits by 16.30 and had just completed half a lap when he spun out of the track.

Rossi will have another two days of testing with Ferrari alongside German superstar Michael Schumacher, before having to pack for Qatar where the Camel Yamaha team will be continue pre-season testing next week.
