After yesterday Valentino Rossi introduced to all his fans the most waiting bike on this season the Phoenix for first time on his account twitter, and the bike looks so pretty, slim and light.
Today in Sepang International Circuit the first test is started.
In the morning the track was so damp because last night got lot of rain, so all the riders just waiting the surface of track going batter, and after 4 hours waiting the first rider out to test his bike was Dani Pedrosa but he not ride so fastly because he tried the grip on the bike first. But half day after he got the felling again with the bike in the corner with the new engine he can finished this day with 2nd place on his hand
And honestly not much we get some report from this first test but when the track getting dry all riders go out from his box and trying to find setting to improve the bike until the race start on April 2012. And look like Jorge Lorenzo was very happy with the result his standing on first position. and he said the bike is so competitive and he can felt the real different since first time he riding his M1 and he said Yamaha team working so hard on the winter to make the bike more and more improve and yes it is.
The world Champion 2011 Casey Stoner only did for lap and decided to stop due his bcak problem. So we can know actually what he will do again with the bike, for sure he will run very fast like on the last season, just flying like a wind, but for the 4 lap he did he got time 2.07.163.
And it was happened after the test finished at 06.00pm Local Time, he gave very positive view with the bike. He said the first impression are very important and he get it with the phoenix, and he felt comfort when he sitting and riding the bike, so smooth and the brake was good and because of all the reason means the bike can be ridden. But he not arrogant rider so he said "We still have a lot to do before we can win like improve the electronics, acceleration, the setup and as you know the bike have big power so how the power to share"
All what he said make me know the phoenik in the right way to bring him to be on Top again.
The new one of this season is CRT bike, not all CRT team doing the test here some of them will ride in Valencia due the financial matter, We still hope they all still can join in this championship because after Anthony west gave us indication to retire just because he not get enough sponsor to his team, it was worst so the riders who will join on MOTOGP 2012 is only 20. Very short grid for big championship hope all the bike can compete tight and not too much gap between Factory, Satelite and CRT.
Lets hope guys, keep MOTOGP here with us
