Lorenzo: “Best start possible: first and first!”

Final weekend in blue off to a flier

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo began his final weekend with the Yamaha Factory team in the best way possible: fastest in both the morning and afternoon sessions. Happy with the Michelin tyres brought to the venue and satisfied after a good day’s work, the ‘Spartan’ is aiming high for the top step in his final race with the team, and on home turf – the venue one on which the Spaniard has taken wins in 2010, 2013 and 2015.

Lorenzo: “It’s an amazing start to the weekend”

Jorge Lorenzo (P1): “I feel very good and I think the tarmac has a lot of grip. Michelin brought very good tyres for the front and the rear. We tried the new front and it's different; it has more movability in the corner and the rear has a lot of grip and it warms up quickly. I felt good with it. Finally we put in the soft rear tyre to see if it is possible and better to use for qualifying and we saw that it‘s clearly better than the hard one and I set a good lap time, so I‘m satisfied. For the moment we have started the last weekend with Yamaha in the best way possible: first and first. Marquez is very strong too and Viñales is very fast as well, it will be very close on Sunday if it‘s a dry race, but we are not sure because the weather is uncertain.”
