Valentino Rossi – The track has dried out after the rain this morning and the “Doctor” did another 11 laps on a Yamaha R1. But it could turn again. Not even the rain could stop Valentino Rossi. The “Doctor” continued to hope to continue the test that began yesterday when only 18 days after the shin and fibula surgery had returned to run on a road Yamaha R1 to test the condition of his leg.
A quick recovery for Valentino Rossi
The track has dried and allowed Valentino to understand if it is the case to try a quick recovery and run this weekend in Aragon. Or if it is better to be cautious and wait for the GP of Japan (the doctors had recommended a rest period of 30-40 days).
In the afternoon the Italian driver arrived in Misano. He choosen a secondary entrance, with his friend Uccio Salucci and father Graziano. Yesterday he had expected that, despite the pain, today Valentino would still try again. At the moment he would have completed two runs, a first one longer than 8 laps and a second one shorter than 3, for 11 turns in total. Now it will be necessary to understand if these will be enough to make a final decision, even if other runners are also expected, allowing rain.
Vale or Michael
According to the press release of Yamaha, we will have to wait until tomorrow evening to know if Alcaniz will be the 9 times World Champion or if the Dutchman Michael van der Mark will have his chance to start in MotoGP.
