Jorge Lorenzo makes stronger showing on Sepang day two

 In MotoGP, News


The Yamaha Factory Racing riders were back on track today in Sepang for the second test day of the three days that mark the start of 2014 activity. Riders Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi continued to work through a number of different test items for the Yamaha engineers as well as some tyre testing for Bridgestone.

Jorge Lorenzo had a better second day, making some improvements to the electronic setting of his YZR-M1 to provide further corner stability and overall lap time. Lorenzo wrapped up the second day in sixth position, just over 0.6 seconds from the front.

“So today, apart from the position which is not ideal, I think we made one step forward. Changing something in the electronics we improved the behaviour of the bike in the corners and it is now more like last year. I can keep a more constant pace and be a little faster for one lap. We need to keep working as our rivals are strong at this moment but today I’m more happy than yesterday.”

“The second day of testing is done and the feeling compared to yesterday with the bike is a lot better and there is more confidence. We still have a lot of work to do but we tried many things today. We gained a lot of data of course. We need to improve but so far we are satisfied with the work we have done. We need to be faster and I think it’s possible. We do need to test though, which is what we are doing!”
