Rossi: "It was a good day of testing"

Nine-time World Champion finds positives and better feeling in post-Catalan GP test

Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) had a tough Catalan GP as he just missed the cut in Q1 and started P13, moving up to eighth in the race. Then it was back on track on Monday for the post-Catalan GP test - with the Movistar Yamaha team testing two new chassis, and finding some good positives. Rossi ended the day in P10 after nearly 80 laps, now armed with a lot more information as the the team look to bounce back in Assen - and continue testing privately in Barcelona.

Valentino Rossi, P10: "It was a good day of testing because we had a lot of interesting items to try from the Yamaha side and I think it was a positive day because we have learnt a lot about the bike and where we can improve. At the end, the feeling was better even if we have not yet solved all the problems. Tomorrow we will have another day, with some further test items so we will try to continue the work."
