Lorenzo: “I hope Argentina will suit us better…”

Lorenzo: “I hope Argentina will suit us better…”

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo moves on to the #ArgentinaGP feeling positive, despite suffering from bronchitis in Austin.

Despite being ill last week, four-time World Champion Jorge Lorenzo still managed to take fourth at COTA. Currently holding fifth place in the championship, he hopes to return to a hundred per cent level of fitness for Sunday‘s race where he will be challenging for another strong result, like his third place at the Argentinian track from last year.

Jorge Lorenzo:
“After being fourth again in Austin I look forward to facing Argentina to try to gain momentum. I think we have solved the first races, where we struggle a bit because of different issues, in the best way possible. We are fifth in the championship, but this is still at the kick off stage. I feel good in terms of riding and also with the bike. Unfortunately I was sick the whole week in Austin and I wasn‘t able to be in a perfect shape to fight for the podium. I hope Argentina will suit us better. In Termas the circuit is pretty nice to ride and last year, even if I wasn‘t in an optimal shape, I still managed to get on the podium. It‘s a fast track with very nice corners and I guess this is good news for our bike.”
