Valentino Rossi ranked ninth in training

Can Valentino Rossi finish his losing streak tomorrow? Adjustments made during testing in Jerez on Monday only made him feel better.

The basics are in brief

  • Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi wants to clinch points at Le Mans on Sunday.
  • This season he only managed to do that in the season opener in Qatar.

After making a disappointing recent appearance, Valentino Rossi wants to make an appearance at Le Mans on Sunday. The Yamaha contestant only finished in the top fifteen at the season opener in Qatar – and he has a modest four points to count. That must change tomorrow.

And at training on Friday, Rossi made a good impression. The Italian is in ninth place, 0.922 seconds behind leaders Johan Zarco. “It was a better day for us,” Rossi was quoted as saying on

“The work we did in Jerez helps us a lot. We worked hard on Monday’s test. We have revised the tuning of the suspension elements, such as the suspension fork. “We changed the scale, the weight distribution of the machine,” Valentino Rossi says.

The 42-year-old is optimistic about tomorrow’s race: “We seem to be stronger than we were in the first races.”
