Three years out of MotoGP - Sete struggles to get up to speed in first Valencia test
SETE GIBERNAU made his first comeback appearance to MotoGP at Valencia yesterday, and suffered something of a baptism of fire against the premier class regulars.
Riding the Onde 2000 Ducati Desmosedici GP8, Gibernau was left with plenty of acclimatisation to do in the first of two days of testing.
He said: "All the other riders are too fast for me to follow at the moment! They are all pretty sure of what they are doing, and I´m not yet. I´m still in need of learning what I have to do to get this bike fast. I´m not scared, but I´ve got a lot of respect for what everyone is doing in this championship.
"I was so excited to be back again. It´s been three years since I last rode at Valencia, which is a big gap, but I enjoyed it a lot. We´re good professionals and have put a very good group together, but we need to work at some tests to see how to work best with each other.
"I´m going to bring all my experience and know-how and try to get us up to speed in the fastest possible way."
