UPDATE: According to Brivio, Rossi just finished 46 laps with a best time of 1’59.135. He reports Rossi as being tired, but his leg and shoulder are feeling better.

Fiat-Yamaha Team Manager Davide Brivio snapped this photo of Valentino Rossi as he left the team box at Brno this afternoon in the Czech Republic. So far Rossi has completed 18 laps around Brno, and will hold a press conference after this last session.

According to, Rossi’s best lap on his first run was in 2′01.200, while on the second run his best lap was 2′00.600 with the same track temperatures as yesterday’s WSBK races. Compare that to Cal Crutchlow’s Superpole time of 1′58.018 just a few days ago in similar conditions.

    According to your own post:

    Crutchlow’s time was 1′58.018. The 1′59.571 time belongs to Checa.

  2. Peter says:

    And assuming Rossi is still using Toseland’s bike, Toseland’s time at Brno was 1′59.699.

    Whoops, I grabbed Cal’s time from Superpole 1, not Superpole aggregated. You’re right, Toseland qualified with a 1’59.699.
