Valentino Rossi

Will continue with current fuel tank

26 Apr, 2016

Rossi returns to Jerez for testing. He is the last of the 19 riders to take to the track, but goes on to complete 52 laps – almost double race distance. Rossi spends the time trying the new Michelin front tyres with the rear fuel tank concept also making a return. However, both Rossi and team-mate Jorge Lorenzo prefer the conventional version.

We tried the bike more in the 2016 version with a different fuel tank. I felt better with the standard fuel tank so I think we’ll continue with the normal one. We didn’t have a lot of things to test today, just some small details. [Apart from the fuel tank] we tried three different front tyres, and we found something good; that was the most important thing.
