Jorge Lorenzo Wants to Make Austin a Turning Point in His Season



After a disappointing start of the season, Lorenzo is hoping that Austin will be the circuit in which he regains his best sensations. Many knew that Lorenzo’s season in Ducati was not going to be easy. However, it was not within the plans of the Italian brand that its new star only got five points in its first two races.

The Spaniard knows that he has to turn the situation around and hopes that everything will change in the last race of the American tour. “I hope my season starts in Austin,” said the five-time champion of the world about his options.
Qatar was a disaster, I was lucky to finish eleventh, because there were many falls,” said Jorge about the start of the World Cup. “And in Argentina my career did not exist.

The first two races of Jorge Lorenzo have been a series of catastrophic misfortunes. After a very complicated Grand Prix in Qatar, I wanted to prove that I was still the same in Argentina, but it could not be. If the weekend was already complex because of the adversities that presented the time, Sunday turned out to be even worse. And it is that Jorge Lorenzo could not even finish a lap.

There is no time to complain about what happened. Although the results are not in our favor, I think we have found a way to improve, but for one thing or another we have not been able to prove it dry.

It is true that the race of Argentina ended because of a fall, but the problems with the Ducati are evident. In none of the trainings have been able, especially Jorge Lorenzo, to compete with the riders of higher of the classification. Andrea Dovizioso, knowledgeable about the bike, has been able to fight from hand to hand in races and training, becoming second in Losail.

Austin is a beautiful circuit where I have not been able to win yet, but where Ducati, for example, has been on the podium for the last three years,” he said with some hope. “It is a good place to test ourselves, to continue the evolution of the Desmosedici and to continue adapting my riding style.

As a champion and veteran that he is, Jorge Lorenzo knows that while it is still time to change the course of his season, Ducati must hurry to find a solution to their current situation.

We are positive in the team, we are working hard and I am convinced that we will soon end this bad stretch.
