Front row starter Lorenzo `getting back to his best´ at IMS

Front row starter Lorenzo `getting back to his best´ at IMS

Jorge Lorenzo joined Fiat Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi on the front row of the grid for the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, and is feeling comfortable stateside.

On the front row for the second consecutive race, Jorge Lorenzo believes that he is finally getting back to his best after a mid-season crisis of confidence. The Spaniard´s cause has been helped by his instant liking for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Jorge Lorenzo - Third

`I am so happy that this track is different to how I expected, because I really enjoyed myself this afternoon! I thought it would be quite dangerous but in fact I feel really safe on my M1 here, which is allowing me to be fast. Some of the corners are really close together which I enjoy because it means I can ride very smoothly in the style that I like. It´s a good track for me. We are on the front row for the second race in a row and this shows that we are truly getting back to our best, so I want to thank my team for their work, both here and in Misano. We are still not perfect in the wet or the dry so we need to make some improvements in warm-up, but we don't know what the weather will do tomorrow so we will have to wait and see.´
