"Seriously, after Qatar I hoped to arrive here and be stronger also in the practice, but I suffer a lot," Rossi admitted. "Yesterday we were strong and also a little bit lucky to cut the Q2 for just some milli (seconds) in front of Dovi (Dovizioso). This morning I started with the first bike and it was not so bad, but I stopped to try something else and it was important for understand the setting for the race. It was good because a good start, good first lap but especially I can push to the end. I feel comfortable with the bike. I feel better with my physical condition. I work very hard. In Qatar (CLICK HERE) I arrive more tired. Now here I can push and also the fight with Cal was great because Cal was very fast. I know that I have to fight with him for arrive on the podium after the practice, but when I follow I see that I had a bit more and it was an important second place. Also for me, for my team, but also for all the team because Yamaha is one, two, and also for the points in the championship."
