Rossi on the YZR-M1

VALENTINO Rossi has nothing but positive feedback from his first few days back at Yamaha.

Rossi will partner current MotoGP champion and former team mate Jorge Lorenzo back at Yamaha on the YZR-M1. Following his first test which was cut-short due to rain, Rossi said: "This bike is different from the one I had ridden, it has more power from the 1000cc engine but as for the rest, it doesn't seem that different."

Rossi, still under contract from Ducati, remained tight-lipped about the rest of the test but did reveal that due to poor weather they couldn't test some parts and settings they wanted to. The next time we'll see him on the YZR-M1 will be in the pre-season tests at Sepang in 2013.

At the Laguna Seca Ducati test " Rossi was all smiles". So not certain this is any headline. Most would like to see Rossi right back in there again. Just don't reckon it will happen.

The reason Rossi couldn't get comfortable on the Ducati is because his balls have shrank. Sorry to disappoint you gentlemen but this coming season will be his last and a poor one at that. A rider who fucks about racing cars in the middle of a motogp season is already looking at other options and lacks focus..

Vale will be back to his winning ways - or I'll bum a kangaroo, like casey used to.

Would that not make it easier?
