Frank Brno qualifying analysis from deflated Lorenzo

Frank Brno qualifying analysis from deflated Lorenzo

Jorge Lorenzo did not hide his disappointment with his qualifying result at Brno.

Outside the 107% qualifying requirement, Jorge Lorenzo has been permitted to race in the Czech Republic. He had problems with tyres and bad timing for his grid position runs on Saturday afternoon.

Jorge Lorenzo – Seventeenth

`It´s been a bad day! At the start of the qualifying it was drier and this is when I was in the garage trying to improve the bike with my team; I missed my chance and this is when the others set their fastest laps. I have had days almost as bad as this before, but I have to say that the fault is not all mine. I think that it is evident at the moment that our tyres are not working as they should. I am a professional however and I have to wait and have confidence in Michelin to find the right way forward. For tomorrow it´s going to be important to get a good start and try to get in the top ten. The surface is very good but we don't have the grip we need, so whatever happens with the weather, it will be very hard.´
