Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo: Best of friends
Jorge Lorenzo says he and Valentino Rossi have patched up their differences as they prepare to ride on the same team again in 2013.
The pair had a bitter relationship when Lorenzo joined Yamaha in 2008 and nine-time world champion left two years later to join Ducati.
However, after two frustrating seasons with the Italian team, Rossi is heading back to Yamaha, where he won four of his MotoGP titles, and will link up with Lorenzo again.
Speaking after the first day of testing in Sepang, Lorenzo said: "It is better to work together than to go separately. We are in the same team.
"Yes, probably something has changed. I hope so. I think he hopes so.
"You can share information. You can speak about the new improvements. We must pass some notes. Together is better."
