MotoGP: Rossi starts second Yamaha stint with Valencia test

Rome, November 13 - Valentino Rossi's second stint at Yamaha started on Tuesday when he did a few laps in Valencia on the Japanese factory team's bike at the first official test for the 2013 season. Nine-time world champion Rossi ended a winless two-year spell with Italian team Ducati when he came 10th at the Valencian Grand Prix on Sunday. Rossi won four of his seven premium class world titles in his first stint at Yamaha from 2004 to 2010. The 33-year-old Italian will partner his former teammate, Spain's reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo, next season. Rossi undertook a few shakedown laps in a weather-conditioned test early on Tuesday, but did not head out for fast laps until the rain had arrived.
