Valentino Rossi spent the day concentrating on tyre compounds and set ups and will not be too worried to have been down in ninth. He did, however, still go round under 1:44.

There is still no final decision about who will be riding for Ilmor with Andrew Pitt, Jeremy McWilliams and Garry McCoy all testing the GP bike.
