Lorenzo disappointed with Free Practice fourth

Lorenzo disappointed with Free Practice fourth

MotoGP series leader wants more speed for Sunday race.

Struggling with unforeseen acceleration problems at his home circuit, MotoGP World Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo was left deflated despite the Spanish sunshine in Jerez. The Fiat Yamaha rider placed fourth on the timing screen at 3/4 of a second slower than teammate Valentino Rossi, and looks to make up ground on Saturday.

Jorge Lorenzo -4th

“It’s nice to be back in Spain and in the sunshine, but I am a bit disappointed about the day. I had a problem at the start with my helmet and we were delayed to go out on track. Once I got started I felt good with the soft Bridgestone tyre, but when we tried the hard one later we had a few problems and the bike didn’t feel completely stable. Tomorrow we need to come back to a different setting and I hope things will be better.”
