Lorenzo’s crew to remain at Yamaha

Lorenzo’s crew to remain at Yamaha

Finding a team of mechanics and technicians who work well together can be as important as the bike a rider is on. In recent years more and more riders have been changing teams and taking their crew chief or mechanics with them, this will not be the case when Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) makes the move to Ducati in 2017, reports motorsport.com.

Lorenzo’s current crew chief Ramon Forcada was approached by Ducati, but has chosen to stay in Yamaha to work with Maverick Viñales. Long time mechanic Juan Llansa will make the step over to Ducati with Lorenzo, the pair having worked together since Lorenzo made his debut in 2003. There is as yet no word as to who Lorenzo’s crew chief at Ducati will be.
