Lorenzo: “I hope to keep this momentum going'

Lorenzo finished on top of the timesheets at the Jerez Test, happy with his pre-existing set up on what was also his 28th birthday.

Still elated from his stunning victory, Lorenzo had every reason to smile today as it was also his 28th birthday. Despite the fact that he was focusing on improving the set up of his YZR-M1, it wasn‘t long after he hit the track that he moved into second place. He concluded his morning stint by topping the timesheets with a 1‘38.516 lap, which remained unbeaten for the rest of the day by all but himself.

During his afternoon outing he dropped another fastest time of 1‘38,508, which only his teammate got close to.

Jorge Lorenzo:
“I‘m quite happy after scoring the first victory of the season for me and also because I turned 28 today. I could feel the heartwarming response from so many people. I‘m back in the groove and I returned to the podium, so now I hope to keep this momentum going in the coming races like Le Mans, Mugello and Montmeló. Today we tested as usual here in Jerez, but we were only focused on different set ups with the bike. We had nothing special to test, but we fixed the basis of the bike for the future. I think we found out how we can take profit of some adjustments, so we are quite confident for the next Grand Prix!”
