Vid Rossis rekordtidiga återvändande till MotoGP var det ingen som förväntade sig något annat än att han skulle köra lugnt. Allt gick dock som smort för Rossi som ser ut att vara tillbaka i toppen inom kort. Efter körningen kyldes det skadade benet med is men körningen gav ingen ökad smärta och nu ser Vale fram emot att köra ännu mer…

Valentino Rossi – Sjunde bästa tid: 1’23.244 Varv: 29
”I am really happy today, especially because I am a lot more agile on the bike than I was in the tests. I feel good and this track is helping me because a lot of it turns to the left. I am feeling quite confident on the bike and also my shoulder is good and not giving me problems. Now I have some pain in the leg and ankle but it’s not too bad, I was able to do some laps in a row and I was quite fast so things seem okay. Now we will have to wait until tomorrow morning to see how the leg is and whether it has swelled overnight or developed any problems.”

Davide Brivio – Team Manager
”Once again Valentino has surprised everyone! After missing four races and not being completely fit this can be considered a very good session. From a team point of view it was like he had never been away, working on the suspension and searching for the best set-up. His physical condition isn’t too bad, a bit more difficult in the right hand corners and okay on the left, but overall it is a lot better than we expected. We’re very happy and now we’ll see where we can get to tomorrow.”
