Fifth place for cool Lorenzo on day one

Fifth place for cool Lorenzo on day one

Fiat Yamaha’s title chasing Spanish youngster Jorge Lorenzo was satisfied with his performance on the first day of the British Grand Prix.

Jorge Lorenzo was positive about the findings he and his Fiat Yamaha crew made on Friday at Donington when he reviewed a wet-dry first free practice.

Jorge Lorenzo - fifth

“I’m really happy about this practice today because I felt comfortable on the bike and was able to brake quite late in the wet. I was pleased that we had a chance in the drier conditions later, because it showed what we need to work on for tomorrow. I had made a lot of laps in the rain so my tyre was quite worn by that time, when it was more dry, but anyway the times weren’t important for me today and I’m just happy about my performance in the wet. We learnt a lot and now we will use this to improve tomorrow.”
