Lorenzo feeling good after speedy start in Japan

Lorenzo feeling good after speedy start in Japan

Fiat Yamaha rider third quickest in opening practice session for Polini Grand Prix of Japan.

Jorge Lorenzo was disappointed with his third place form in Qatar, but had no complaints about his first encounter with the Twin Ring Motegi circuit. The Spaniard was third quickest in Friday free practice, and even looked on the positive side of predicted Saturday rainfall in Japan.

Jorge Lorenzo – 3rd

”I’m so happy with this practice session because we often struggle a bit at the start of the weekend but today this wasn’t the case at all and I felt great from the start. My M1 felt good when braking, under acceleration and in the corners so I think we are in good shape and now I hope we can continue like this tomorrow even if it rains, in fact I am quite curious to see what happens in the rain and how the lap time is.”
