Rossi is warmed-up for MotoGP Jerez

After his mixed weekend so far at Jerez, Valentino Rossi stated his Sunday intentions with the fastest time in the MotoGP warm-up.

Enjoying the Spanish sunshine on Sunday morning at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, and with yesterday’s wind having died down, Valentino Rossi looked comfortable once more in the premier class warm-up at the Gran Premio de España.

The Italian star has qualified in fourth place but he almost matched his qualifying pace in the warm-up session as he led the way with a best time of 1’39.778, ahead of Fiat Yamaha team-mate and poleman Jorge Lorenzo by a 0.039s margin.

As MotoGP top riders flexed their muscles ahead of the third race of the year, Lorenzo’s compatriot Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) and Casey Stoner (Ducati Marlboro) were also lapping quickly in third and fourth place, whilst Loris Capirossi (Rizla Suzuki) completed the top five.
