Sepang MotoGP Test: Rossi: Lorenzo ready by Qatar, Marquez 'hides'.

Valentino Rossi improved both his lap time and position during day two of the Sepang MotoGP test. The Italian finished fourth quickest and the fastest Yamaha rider, 0.8s from new Suzuki signing Andrea Iannone. 

"In the end it was a good day, because this morning we lost a lot of time waiting for the track conditions," Rossi said of the damp start. "We did more than 50 laps. We had some important stuff to try and more-or-less everything was quite positive. My pace was quite good and at the end I do one time attack and I am in fourth position." 

"About us, I'm happy, the bike is good. Is very beautiful and I feel good and looks like also in the straight it is not so bad, so it looks like we have a good potential this season." 

Rossi added that he did not try any of the new Michelin tyres available today. 

"We decide to do tomorrow. I know from the other riders they find something good in the front. We hope the conditions are good and I will try tomorrow."
