Valentino Rossi positively leaves Jerez after completing a successful Jerez Test at the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto. The Doctor wrapped up the day in 12th place, 0.821 off Maverick Viñales’ chart-topping time.
After a disastrous Spanish Grand Prix, Valentino Rossi leaves the Jerez circuit in high spirits following a positive test.
Rossi, who finished 17th in Sunday’s Grand Prix, focused on improving the feeling with his YZR-M1, more specifically improvements in braking and rear grip, two factors that hindered the Italian’s charge through the back on Sunday’s 25 lap race.
The 42-year-old bettered the time he managed in Qualifying by two tenths and drastically improved his race pace. Rossi now hopes that his “better feeling with the bike” will carry across to Le Mans in two weeks.
Franco Morbidelli also had a positive test in Spain. The third-place finisher focussed on new parts by Yamaha and, like his team-mate, aimed to improve the feeling in the braking zone. Like Rossi, Morbidelli hopes the feeling with his M1 will transfer to France.
