Rossi: 'YZR doesn't feel so different'

Yamaha man happy back at Yamaha

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.
