Lorenzo: “We never exactly found the right rhythm”

Five-time World Champion didn’t have the perfect British GP – but was closer to the winner once more

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) is cutting more and more off his gap to the winner in each race this season, and Silverstone was no exception. The Majorcan was only a three and a half seconds back in the British GP, and despite not having found the right rhythm for race day.

Lorenzo also managed the race differently, holding more back at the start – and is confident going into the next round at Misano, somewhere he has an incredible winning record.

Jorge Lorenzo, P5: “This time I opted for a more conservative start than usual and maybe it slowed my progress in the early laps. For sure after rather a difficult weekend, in which we never exactly found the right rhythm, we have to be happy because in the race I managed to manage the throttle well and preserve the tyres. In this way the rear tyre stayed consistent throughout. It wasn’t sufficient to catch the leading group but it was enough to keep the gap down and score my best result of the season in this sense. And I think that at Misano we can do even better. I want to congratulate Andrea, who rode a masterful race, and showed that he was perfect in managing this type of race. His results speak for themselves: four wins and lthe championship lead can only make the entire team happy.”
