Lorenzo: “It will be a hard fight for the front row'

Jorge Lorenzo ended the day in 8th overall after FP3 at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

The double MotoGP™ Champion set a fastest lap of 1‘55.108, less than three-tenths from the the leader, and ahead of his teammate Rossi in 9th.

Jorge Lorenzo:
“It was difficult today, but I feel great on the bike with the soft tyre. We also tried the harder tyre, which is very consistent. I could maybe do around a hundred laps of 1‘56.1 on it, but this is too slow, so, for the moment, I prefer the soft option. We found some problems with the electronics this afternoon that were a little strange. We need to investigate what‘s going on. We‘ll keep working to increase our pace to a high 1‘54, which is our goal. It will be a hard fight for the front row tomorrow, because many riders have the extra soft tyre, that gives them four-tenths of a second. They are also stronger than last year, so it will even be difficult to get a position on the second row, but you never know what will happen. Maybe we can find something that will give us half a second and even let us fight for pole position.”
