Lorenzo second on day one at Mugello
Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo enjoyed his first day at the ‘Autodromo del Mugello’ track in the Tuscan sunshine in the afternoon and set some competitive lap times when the sun came out in the afternoon.
Lorenzo decided not to take any risks and remained seated in the Yamaha Factory Racing team‘s pit box during the FP1 session. What he missed in action in the morning, he made up for in the afternoon.
The current leader of the championship made clear how much he loves the Mugello circuit, by setting multiple fast laps and challenging at the top of the standings throughout the FP2 session. He wrapped up the day in second place with a best lap of 1‘48.157s, 0.461s from first.
I set a 1‘48.4s on the first run so that is a good lap time at this track on this bike with these tyres. In the last run, with the same tyres, I improved the lap time even more, so the feeling, starting with this setting, is good. Tomorrow, I think we can improve everything a little bit more and go faster.
