Rossi to wear Ducati motorcycle clothing at Valencia test

Rossi has been authorised to switch to Ducati early 

Valentino Rossi will pull on his Ducati-red motorcycle clothing for the first time at the post-season testing session at Valencia.

MotoGP teams only have a limited number of sanctioned testing sessions, and Rossi was keen to get to work with the Ducati team as soon as possible - the first opportunity being the test in Valencia shortly after the season finale.

There had been much speculation about whether Yamaha would allow the contracted rider to test in Ducati motorcycle clothing, but it seems that the manufacturer's executive officer for engineering operations Masao Furusawa has granted the Italian his wish.

Rossi told broadcaster Italia1: "Furusawa called me and told me it was a way of saying thanks for what I have done for Yamaha.

"I think it's a nice gesture and it shows that Yamaha has valued the things done over these years."

Rossi achieved another podium in the latest round in Australia, finishing third after a late passing move on Nicky Hayden, his teammate for the 2011 season.
