Rossi enjoys new Yamaha chassis

Following testing in Brno, Valentino Rossi is excited about the new Yamaha chassis and hopes to use it soon.

The Italian tested a new chassis and swingarm in post-race testing on Monday and was delighted with the results after 60 laps.

Rossi would end up with the second fastest time of the day, three tenths of a second behind teammate Jorge Lorenzo.

“In the end it was a good day,” quipped The Doctor on

“This morning everybody was a little bit sad because the condition of the track look quite bad. And when I entered the track – we decided to go anyway because we had some important things to test – the lap time was quite high.

“But after, when 4-5-8 bikes were on track, it cleaned and for the last two hours it was a very good test. A very good level. Because we can push, go fast. Also the time attack at the end was not so bad.

“But especially I like the new stuff. We tried a lot of different things, especially a different chassis and different swingarm. And I like.

“The feeling with the bike improved and I can enter the corner faster. I also like the bike in braking. Is not, unfortunately, a two-second step. Anyway I feel good and I hope to use as soon as possible. I have to speak with [Yamaha] but I hope we can use the chassis during this season.”
