For the 1 day is very positive..!! He was fast, he didnt make is fastest lap because last year qualify he was faster but if he did this time on race tyres is a great improvement on the Yamaha for the 1 day compared to last year race times.. Lets see how it go the rest of the days!! Go Rossi...

The 2'00 mark is very very fast, if you look at the lap record and qualifying records, that's where they stand. So for Rossi to be that quick in first test is very positive indeed. VR, let this be your triumphant year.

He will be fast at the start of the year just like last, but eventually Honda will simply overpower Yamaha in development through the year. Unless this bike is built for braking like his old M1, I doubt he will mount much of a challenge. I say this as a fan and I hope I'm wrong.

I'm a Rossi fan, but I don't think we should read too much into 1st day test times!

There were times last season where Rossi was really fast in practice, but still finished the race 4th (One where he only missed out on pole by being held-up by Dovisioso, maybe Sepang?)

Obviously speed in practise-sessions is important, but race-pace is where it's at. And we won't see what he's got until the season starts.

Like Vale, I'll wait 6 races to judge his performance.

i agree crashnetdummies so not VR judging from the picture, for me he is the real surprise of the test but last year he was also fast in the test and the first race, after that his level didn't go up as much as his main competitors so let see what happens tomorrow,
great start for him for sure forza vale!
