Lorenzo: “My mentality from this morning was to go for it”

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo topped both MotoGP™ practice sessions on Friday at the Circuito de Jerez.

Lorenzo posted a 1’39.174 in FP1 to end the first day on top of the combined timesheets as he dominated both practice sessions. It has not been the best of starts to the season for the Spaniard, but he clearly feels at home in front of the Jerez fans.

 

Jorge Lorenzo:

“My mentality from this morning was to go for it and don‘t think too much, just try to ride according to my instinct and it worked very well, especially in the morning. In the afternoon we tried the hard rear tyre that was very bad, with lots of spinning for everyone and I decided to go back to the softer one, since that one is much better in cold but also in warmer conditions. Yamaha and I did great things together in the past. In the last two years I felt less good, but we focused on the year and now it seems we‘re coming back stronger. We will have to demonstrate it tomorrow and especially on Sunday. Yesterday was a great day for me and I am very grateful that Yamaha has faith in me even in very hard moment. I want to show my form again on the track tomorrow with my speed.”
