"I am not very good under brakes" It is probable that VR46 had to change his previously excellent late-braking style a lot to get the Ducati into turns, and now he must "unlearn" those bad habits. It may be that there is nothing wrong with his Yam and it just feels so very different to what he has been fighting with for the past two years. The Ducati had to be forced round turns and the M1 almost certainly needs a more delicate touch, I'd guess that Rossi needs to get "dialled in" to the M1 as much as "dialling in" the bike to suit him. He can't do it at Austin, but at tracks where he has Yam data from previous races he'll be able to overlay his current data and see where the differences are, and where his riding technique needs to be adjusted.
