Rossi will take part in Brno test

Despite leaving Yamaha for Ducati at the end of 2010, Valentino Rossi will still take part in Monday's post-race test session at Brno.

The test is the last before the end of the racing season, and traditionally used to evaluate ideas for next year's motorcycles.

Since he is leaving Yamaha, Rossi is unlikely to be given the chance to try any 2011 M1 parts and will concentrate on trying to understand why he could only manage an off-form fifth in Sunday's race.

"Today we just weren't as fast and I couldn't stay with the leaders," said Rossi on Sunday. "We are sad but tomorrow we will have the chance to test and try to understand what went wrong today, which will help us to be in better shape in Indianapolis."

"Tomorrow will be a good opportunity for us to improve and work towards our target of a good end to the season," added team manager Davide Brivio.

Rossi's team-mate and title leader Jorge Lorenzo, who will soon announce a new Yamaha contract, is expected to test the 2011 parts.

When interviewed by the Beeb, Jerry Burgess hadn't spoken to Vale after the race, he'd "Spoken to some Italians who had spoken to Vale!" The interview was very unnerving for JB, lots of blinking & swallowing, particularly when questioned about Vale testing 2011 parts for Yamaha. I don't know where JB is going to next year, but I don't think he's too happy about what's happening!

Burgess was spotted in the back of the Ducati truck at Brno, he's going with. Makes sense, Vale and Jerrys last two years in GP with the team. 2011 win championship on Ducati 800, 2012 win championship on Ducati 1000. New motivation is what they need to end on a high
