On the other side of the Yamaha garage, Rossi was not a happy camper, languishing back in 10th spot and not feeling the same confidence as his teammate. "I am not satisfied, I am not happy with today's result," lamented Rossi. "I have many problems, especially on acceleration. The bike moves a lot so I have to delay the throttle opening. Tonight we have to think about it and try to understand what is happening for us to be more competitive tomorrow. The position at the end of the day does not show the reality. We, Lorenzo and I, have been riding until the end with the same tires, while the rest did change towards the end. So it is difficult to understand the real situation." Rossi knows that getting into the top ten in tomorrow's FP3 morning practice is important (the top ten riders go directly to QP2). "Our goal for tomorrow is to finish in the morning between the 10 first riders."
