Rossi: “I didn‘t feel very well on the bike”

Rossi: “I didn‘t feel very well on the bike”

Valentino Rossi struggled on the opening day of practice at the Octo British Grand Prix, finishing down in tenth overall.

Rossi – tied on points at the top of the MotoGP™ World Championship standings with his teammate Lorenzo - was third after FP1 and was one of just three riders to dip under the 2‘04 mark in the morning practice, posting a 2‘03.967.  The ‘Doctor’ managed to improve his time by 0.640s in FP2, but found himself down in tenth on the overall timesheets after struggling with the feeling of his bike.

Valentino Rossi: “This morning wasn‘t so bad, but we had some more problems this afternoon because we tried to modify the bike to improve the tyre-life but I wasn‘t fast and strong enough. I didn‘t feel very well on the bike and lost some positions. The practice in the afternoon was a bit difficult, but we were able to try some different things and now we will check the data and try to put it all together to be stronger tomorrow. Here in Silverstone the weather is always a big question mark and just like everybody else we would prefer all practice sessions to be dry, but that might not be possible because the weather is becoming worse. Fortunately I‘m in the top ten, so it‘s not a big problem if we have a wet practice tomorrow, but we all hope for a dry session so we can improve the setting.”
