Valentino Rossi's first public test of a Formula 1 car ended in embarrassment at Valencia yesterday when he spun off on his first lap out of the pits and ended up in the gravel. The MotoGP star was trying the car in the wet and spent most of the day in the garage. With only half an hour to go before the test ended Rossi set off in the F2004 he is using, the car on wet weather tyres. Halfway way around the lap he spun off. The Italian will return today and will hopefully make a better impression.
