Valentino Rossi started his attempt to regain the MotoGP title in the best possible way this afternoon, taking victory in the opening ‘qualifying session' of the 2007 season, the BMW M Award. Finishing off an excellent preseason for Yamaha, Rossi refused to get carried away by the result, but was nonetheless pleased to have drawn first blood in the title chase.

"It's magnificent, but of course it doesn't count towards World Championship points. It is the first battle won," said the Italian. "The new Yamaha is already faster than last year's model and it seems to be effective at every circuit. It is a good starting point for 2007."
