Lorenzo: “This difficult moment will be over soon”

The ‘Spartan’ touches down in Texas ready for round three

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) has had a difficult first two races in red with a run off in Qatar and then a crash on the first lap in Argentina, but the five-time World Champion arrives to the Circuit of the Americas optimistic for a turnaround – with a good podium record at the track for both man and machine.

Lorenzo feels he’s now on the right track to improve once again – with the two results so far in the season not representative of the project or pace.

Jorge Lorenzo: “Finally we have arrived at Austin, and I just couldn’t wait to get here after my crash at Termas de Río Hondo. I don’t want to think about what happened in Argentina anymore, and even though the results up until now haven’t gone our way, I think we are on the right track to improve. Unfortunately for one reason or another, I haven’t been able to demonstrate this. Austin is a great circuit, one where I have never won, but Ducati here has always been competitive and has been on the podium in the last three years. It’s a good track to keep on developing the Desmosedici and adapting my riding style. In the team we are all optimistic, we’re working well together and I’m sure this difficult moment will be over soon.”
