Ducati rider Valentino Rossi was satisfied with his performance during the first MotoGP race of the season.

The Italian superstar could only manage to finish in 7th place, but the first race outing has allowed him to gather some good information about the Desmosedici GP11 and its component parts, including the Ohlins forks.

Considering there is still some way to go with the set-up of the Ducati bike and he is still recovering from shoulder surgery, Rossi was pleased to finish best of the rest behind the Hondas and Yamahas.

"I learned a lot in this test and in this race, and we've already given very specific instructions about what must be done in the long term, in order to improve for the second half of the season for example," he said.

Rossi has won nine titles during his time in the world championship classes, including MotoGP championships with both Repsol Honda and Yamaha.
