Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo spent the first day at the British Grand Prix working with his crew to improve on the front end feeling of his YZR-M1, a task complicated by the changing British weather.

A full wet session in the morning followed by a mostly dry but briefly wet afternoon practice was hindered by strong winds on track. Lorenzo ended day one in seventh on the combined times, 0.697 seconds from first.

“It was nice to try the bike in the rain this morning as we may have these conditions for the race. Overall the day was not bad, but not very good! We had a lot of problems with the wind in the afternoon session which made it difficult. I don’t feel very comfortable yet, especially on the straight, we have to solve a problem with the front of the bike to be faster. We’ll see tomorrow, I hope we can improve much more.”

Wilco Zeelenberg – Team Manager
“Free practice one gave us bad weather in the morning but at least we had a full wet session. The second session was a bit mixed, a lot of wind and some showers making it difficult for the riders. We are missing something in the steering and the balance of the bike isn’t right yet. It’s the first time here with the 1000cc so we need to work a bit on the setting.”
