The first videos from Sepang are already hitting YouTube and obviously everyone is curious to know more about the Ducati G12 that had an almost complete make-over in just three months.
Valentino Rossi seems already delighted with his new machine and says that his riding position on the bike has definitely improved as does his corner entry, braking and he can now get the tires up to temperature faster, four of the big problems he had with last season, besides the tricky front end feeling. The wider range of set-ups has also convinced Rossi that Ducati has taken the right direction.
Testing will continue tomorrow and we’ll see if Rossi continues to improve - he was 0.7 seconds adrift from leader Jorge Lorenzo today and Casey Stoner was missing from the grid - or if the GP12 Phoenix will turn into another GP11 chimera.
