P4 for Lorenzo: "My best practice session this season"

Impressive debut in red in front of the home crowd for the ‘Spartan’

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) shot to the top in a wet FP1 at his home Spanish GP before ending the session a little further back, but the five-time World Champion hit back in the afternoon to top the session briefly in the last few minutes of FP2 - subsequently securing P4 on the combined timesheets for Day 1.

Top Ducati and quick in both conditions, Lorenzo’s record at Jerez makes for incredible reading – and after a test at the venue on the Borgo Panigale machine already under his belt, the home hero is gunning for a big result as he debuts in red on home soil.

Jorge Lorenzo, P4: “Probably today’s was my best practice session this season, especially because the sensations in the final run with a new tyre were very good. Every time I get on the Desmosedici the feeling gets better and better and, although we still have a lot of work to do, especially with used tyres and thinking of the future, today we finished positively and I was the first Ducati rider with fourth quickest time. It’s true that we are still some way off the leaders and that tomorrow we will have to confirm that we have made a step forward, but I think that we have margin for improvement.”
