Rossi back on a Yamaha

Thursday, November 22 2012

Valentino Rossi has completed his first session back aboard a Yamaha since joining up with the team again for the 2013 MotoGP season.

Despite the test being cut short due to rain, Rossi made the most of being back on his old team’s machine, saying that though it was ‘different’ from the one he had ridden in the past, it has ‘more power from the 1000cc engine.’ Rossi will team up with current MotoGP champ, Jorge Lorenzo, for 2013, but so far, he’s still under contract from Ducati. He wouldn’t be drawn on exactly how the test went, but he’ll be back onboard again for the pre-season test in Sepang next year.
