Lorenzo back to the front

After an impressive ride from the reigning champion in Austria, it's straight back to business in Brno Free Practice

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo had a good first day in Brno, as the reigning champion went straight back up the order to take back his place as a frontrunner after a more difficult Friday in Austria. Lorenzo staged an impressive comeback in qualifying and the race at the Austrian GP, and in Brno has a much smaller mountain to climb overnight. As ever, the 5-time world champion is focusing on improving even further as he aims to win another race at the Czech venue after a stunning lights to flag display of domination in 2015.

Jorge Lorenzo (P3): "Today we had a good day at the Brno circuit. In the morning during the practice some drops of rain came down and it was a bit colder but in the afternoon we found the track to be perfect with good conditions. We were able to be fast both on one lap as well as keep up the pace, so I‘m quite satisfied with the bike. The track has some bumps, even more than last year, but it is the same for everyone. Tomorrow we have some margin to improve."

Lorenzo: “We have a good base setup”
