Lorenzo continues impressive preseason with Aprilia

Jorge Lorenzo has shown himself to be in fine form during this year´s preseason, and this week´s performance has been no exception. At the Catalunya Test he topped the timesheets on both days.

The Majorcan also faced the microphones of motogp.com, providing us with an evaluation of his progression during Aprilia´s winter testing and his thoughts on his title prospects.

"I´m not going as fast as I would like, but my rhythm is getting more consistent every time and my adaptation to the bike continues improving. I´ve taken a step forward since the Jerez practices" stated Lorenzo on the second day at Montmeló.

Another satisfied rider was Héctor Barberá, happy with his bike and confident of having a great second season in 250cc. "Every day I´m happier and more comfortable on the bike. The rhythm has been consistent, although we´ve got to keep our feet on the ground and carry on working" explained Barberá in his exclusive interview.

The Fortuna Aprilia team will be back on the track next week, with a test in Estoril alongside various 125cc and 250cc outfits. Amongst those in attendance in Portugal will be Andrea Dovizioso, a major rival to the Spanish quarter litre riders.
