Lorenzo: “I wasn‘t able to ride as I wanted”

Lorenzo: “I wasn‘t able to ride as I wanted”

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo struggled to make the rear tyre work for him in Argentina, finishing down in fifth.

Lorenzo was quick to attack from the grid start, taking third through the first corner then swiftly dealing with Aleix Espargarò for second and beginning the hunt for Marquez. The charge was to be short lived as the Mallorcan struggled to make the harder rear tyre work for him, gradually dropping to take fifth at the line.

Jorge Lorenzo:
“Honestly, I am very disappointed. I didn't expect to finish in fifth position. I expected to fight at least for the podium. I was not able to ride as good as Valentino with the hard rear tyre, maybe we needed a softer one to feel better. I didn‘t feel good and I wasn‘t able to ride as I wanted. Anyway, we keep getting points and let‘s see in Jerez if we can be faster. Valentino‘s race was unbelievable, he was able to go faster than anyone else with the harder tyre, he is in an unbelievable shape.”
