Rossi: No explanation for test spill

'We had a programme this afternoon... unfortunately I crashed at the beginning – I don't understand why because I don't push a lot' - Valentino Rossi
Valentino Rossi had no explanation for his crash during MotoGP testing at Catalunya in the afternoon, with the Factory Yamaha rider saying he 'did not understand' the reason for his fall.

Rossi ended the day sixth on the timesheets with a lap of 1m 42.513s leaving him 0.609s behind team-mate Jorge Lorenzo at the top.

He lost vital time following his spill in the afternoon, but ventured back out to test a new rear tyre.

“At the end it was not so bad and this morning we did a good test and we continued to work on my settings from the race,” said Rossi.

“We worked on the settings to help me stop the bike in a better way and I am happy.

“We had a programme this afternoon to try a different setting with a different weight distribution, but unfortunately I crashed at the beginning – I don't understand why because I don't push a lot.

“I lost one hour and a half and I come back on the track just because we have a rear tyre to try and it was very good, I like it a lot,” he added.

“A good hard tyre is better for everybody.”

Rossi was also pleased to hear of Suzuki's 2015 comeback, with the MotoGP legend hailing the Japanese manufacturer's return as 'very important'.

“It is very good that Suzuki comes back. To have another factory team in MotoGP is important.”

We fans just want to see Rossi leading a race at some point of time,, that would be the time for which we were waiting to cherish for almost 3 years,, it will be like the phoenix rising out of ashes,, Just imagine Rossi leading the race crossing the home straight and that will bring the roofs of grand stand down, that news will take the crash.net by strom. Entire motogp will cherish that moment including the rivals and their fans and that's how much he means to motogp... Hope this happens in near future and atleast a 4-5 times before he runs into retirement... Go vale go go....
