Lorenzo and Forcada review rider-crew chief relationship

Lorenzo and Forcada review rider-crew chief relationship

Fiat Yamaha garage members on working together for success.

One of the most important relationships in MotoGP, that of a rider and his chief mechanic can make the difference between success and failure out on track. Despite only having worked together for a single year, Fiat Yamaha´s Jorge Lorenzo and Ramon Forcada have one of the most solid understandings in the premier class, one based on trust in each other´s respective capabilities to put a bike on the podium.

Whilst Lorenzo had plenty of experience with 250cc machinery and two titles to show for it, Forcada had achieved success at the highest level with the likes of John Kocinski, Alex Barros and Casey Stoner during his long stay in MotoGP.

In the accompanying interview Lorenzo and Forcada discuss the changes made together in the 2008 season, how the Yamaha M1 was adjusted for the Spanish rider´s arrival and the crucial nature of communication in the garage.
