Fortuna Yamaha - Marco Melandri interview

SUMMARY: ***image1:right*** Questions & Answers with Marco Melandri after Yamaha Factory test in Valencia.

Q: How do you feel having ridden the YZR-M1 for the first time at these tests in Valencia and Jerez? What is your first impression of the bike?

A: The night before I rode the bike for the first time in Valencia I was so excited I didn't sleep at all! The first lap with the M1 was really strange - I could not believe a bike could go so fast. And the thing that I noticed most was the power. It felt hard to control at first but after a few laps it got easier and easier. At this stage I feel like I need maybe eight days more of testing until I can control the bike properly. I am pleased and surprised with my best lap time from this test - 1m 34.83s.
