Rossi happy with Edwards BMW win

Despite suffering a crash during Sundays qualify session, and as a result losing out on the BMW Z4 M Roadster on offer, Valentino Rossi was pleased to see team-mate Colin Edwards take home the prize.

If I dont win the car, I think Colin is the best alternative. declared the Italian, who drew positives from the rain-affected 40 minute session yesterday at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Im happy, because I found out how good the M1 was in the rain. I had done four or five good laps and was going well, before I made a little braking mistake.

Rossi had an exceptional Test, fastest overall and putting in the top nine fastest laps on Fridays first MotoGP session.

In the complete interview, exclusive to motogp.com, the World Champion also talked about the chattering problem and the first race in Jerez.
