Lorenzo just misses Q2

‘Spartan’ still searching for one lap improvements

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) spent most of practice at Losail International Circuit in the top ten, until a final shootout in FP3 saw the five-time World Champion just miss out as he was pushed down to P12 on combined times.

Lorenzo is happy with race pace – but is also sure there’s more to find on one lap.

JL99, P12: “Today we tried to change a few things from yesterday and we used a setting that allowed us to improve our pace on race tyres. Nevertheless in some parts of the circuit we were unable to go any quicker, and this configuration was not enough to allow me to do a very quick lap in view of qualifying. Our aim for tomorrow is to search for the best compromise possible to be able to make another step forward. On the one hand I am happy with my pace, but I can’t be satisfied with the time I set on new tyres.”
