Valentino Rossi: Small details, but nothing significantMay 8, 2019
Valentino Rossi continues to fall down. According to the results of yesterday’s tests, the Italian racer took only the seventeenth line, which indicates big problems. Yamaha engineers didn’t prepare anything new for Rossi and Vinales for these tests, so they worked with updated electronics, hoping to get more power on the rear wheel and improve acceleration.
“We did not find anything that could improve our life, but there are some small details that we use in the next races,” – said Valentino, who, starting from 13th place, took 6th place in the Sunday race.
Team director Massimo Meregalli suggested that the minor changes made on Monday are not encouraging at all.
“We have made small improvements that can be used at Le Mans. Honestly, waiting for something more, but in any case there is progress, – said Massimo. “We will test new upgrades on the following tests in Barcelona.”
According to the test results, Rossi showed the 17th result, losing 1.677 seconds to the satellite pilot Fabio Quartararo, who chases the Yamaha M1 2018. Vinales fixed on the fifth line and lost to the leader 0.847 seconds
