Although he had intended to keep it secret, news has somehow leaked out that Yamaha's 2008 signing Jorge Lorenzo has already tested the M1 in a special session in Almeria. The reigning 250cc World Champion and current series leader was joined by Michelin tester Andrew Pitt at the Spanish circuit last week, although he only undertook five laps with the purpose of examining the seating position and other such details.

Although he has experienced 800cc riding for the first time, Lorenzo is not getting ahead of himself, as he explained to motogp.com yesterday afternoon.

"We can't start thinking about next year. Although it seems like there isn't long to go, we have to keep focused and try to win," explained the current Aprilia rider, 20 points clear at the top of the classification
