Lorenzo targets speedy getaway from front row

Lorenzo targets speedy getaway from front row

Fiat Yamaha´s Jorge Lorenzo qualified second on the grid for the Australian Grand Prix.

On the front row for the fourth consecutive race, and looking for the podium which barely eluded him at Motegi last weekend, Jorge Lorenzo has been practicing for a quick getaway at Phillip Island.

Jorge Lorenzo - Second

`I´ve been fairly consistent throughout the sessions here and we made another step this morning which allowed me to be quite fast this afternoon. The weather was more complicated than it looked because the wind was very strong, but anyway my bike worked very well. I am disappointed to miss out on the pole position by such a tiny amount but anyway I am happy to be on the front row and also to have such a good race pace. My rivals are fast too and we know that it is going to be a hard battle, but I am really looking forward to it. Yesterday we tried some practice starts, because this has been an issue for me lately, so now I hope I can get a good start tomorrow, stay at the front and try to fight. Thanks to my team and Michelin for getting us onto the front row again; the fourth race in a row!´
