Visordown: Lorenzo didn’t ignore Spies

The newly-crowned MotoGP World Champion has responded to rumours he snubbed Ben Spies when his future Fiat Yamaha team-mate tried to congratulate him on track in Malaysia after he secured the 2010 title. Visordown has highlighted a comment made by the Spanish rider on his Twitter page, which said: “I had some messages asking me why I didn't pay attention to Spies when he wanted to congratulate me. I have to say that I didn't see... And feel he was there at that the moment of our celebration. I just told this to him. He is a good guy and we have a good relationship.”
