Lorenzo frustrated with Phillip Island fourth

Lorenzo frustrated with Phillip Island fourth

Jorge Lorenzo was left with the sensation of unfulfilled potential after coming home fourth in Australia.

Fourth place for the second consecutive race did little to cheer Jorge Lorenzo, as the Fiat Yamaha rider was left ruing his missing out on his podium goal in Australia. the Spaniard was involved in an exciting battle with the likes of James Toseland during the race.

Jorge Lorenzo - Fourth

`I´m not very happy with the race because I know I should have been able to fight for the podium today. I didn´t ride like I know I can, Toseland was in front of me many times and I couldn´t pass him, and then I couldn´t follow Valentino when he came through. I think I had the rhythm to have been with Valentino but it didn´t work today. Even though it´s mathematically still possible, I think that the second and third places in the championship are probably lost to me now. I think that the most important thing now is to get good results in Malaysia and Valencia so that we finish the season in the right way. The team, the tyres and the bike are all working well, we´re getting good results but we know they can be better. I like Malaysia a lot, I rode there in the winter and I think it will be good for Michelin, so I´m looking forward to it.
