MotoGP » Rossi: Sixth GP12 test day 'interesting'


Valentino Rossi: Today we confirmed various aspects of the GP12's electronics and chassis, collecting a lot of useful information for Filippo and the guys in the factory. I think that the work is well underway as we prepare for our next steps.

At least he said he was there to collect data for the engineers and not just Mr Burgess :p

Have any oficial or rumour mongering times been released? Just for interest as "proper" test times are only of use to the engineers who know what changes were in place and the efects to each other.

Pushing, testing, thinking, analysing all the way to fifth!!! Go Rossi take it to fifth. I know you can do it. Lots of people here will post otherwise but i know you will take it all the way to fifth.

i dont think Stoner was riding the ducati at this test and i'm pretty sure he also didn't throw it in the weeds either. I know Ducati wish he was testing their ducati here and they would probably love him to throw it in the weeds but he isn't testing no matter how much you wish he was.

@Bungle
rossi has had as many, or nearly as many crashes as Stoner this year while also being nowhere near competitive near the back end, whilst Stoner was podiuming or winning if he didn't crash!
Take off the blinkers and see his efforts for what they are. Lame and clueless.

Photograph on gpone.com suggests a significantly shorter wheelbase.
Its like rossis directly sitting on front tyre rather than the chopper-esque look of gp11.1
Trend of carbon fibre and engine as stressed member continues.
Engine is no longer L-90 but V-xx degree.
