The Ducati Team riders will start tomorrow’s French Grand Prix at the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans from the second row of the grid.
Jorge Lorenzo on the other hand managed to move up from yesterday’s tenth place to fifth in FP3 (sixth overall), and he also finished Q2 in the same position with a lap of 1’31.590.
The French Grand Prix, round 5 of the championship, will start at 14.00 CET tomorrow afternoon and will be run over a distance of 27 laps.
Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team #99) – 6th (1’31.590)
“Even though we are not on the front row, it was a positive day in many aspects. We followed the same working method as Jerez and, thanks also to the new chassis that I had tested at Mugello, bit by bit we were able to improve the bike. I just missed out on an ‘explosive’ lap but in any case I’m happy with my starting position. We have a good race pace, but there are a lot of fast riders out there and until tomorrow it’s going to be difficult to interpret the potential of each one. We’ll try and fight for the podium, and in any case take home the best result possible.”
