Stoner thinks Lorenzo will find it tough

In a recent interview with Autosport Casey Stoner gave his verdict on how he thinks Jorge Lorenzo will adapt to the Ducati in 2017.

Double MotoGP™ World Champion Stoner, who is currently an official Ducati Test Rider and won the 2007 title while riding for the manafacturer, thinks Lorenzo will struggle to begin with when he joins the team for the 2017 season.

"It will take a little bit of time to adjust..." Casey Stoner

“Of course at the beginning it's going to be very tough for him," Stoner told Autosport. “He's had so many years on the Yamaha, which is a very, very different machine and the Japanese and Italian styles, essentially, are very, very different. It will take a little bit of time to adjust, there's no doubt about that. But we know Jorge, we know how he just keeps slogging things out.”
