Lorenzo believes in all-weather competitiveness

Lorenzo believes in all-weather competitiveness

Fiat Yamaha rider not bothered by softer tyre dip in pace.

Jorge Lorenzo is the only rider to have placed on the front row for every MotoGP race in the 2009 season, and he wasn't about to let that record go in Donington Park. Third on the grid, the Spaniard is happy with his pace -even with a less comfortable softer tyre.

Jorge Lorenzo -3rd

“With the harder tyre, we’re definitely ready and I feel very good on the bike. With the softer tyre and on my last run I wasn’t so fast, but we are not too concerned about this. Anyway I feel confident on my M1 and I am enjoying riding here. Tomorrow we don’t know about the weather but I was fast also in the rain yesterday so I know that I can be competitive even if the weather is bad. I am really hoping for a good race here since it’s the last time we will come.”
