The Ducati Team riders will start the GP of The Americas, round 3 of the 2018 MotoGP world championship season, from rows 2 and 3 after qualifying at the Austin, Texas circuit.

Jorge Lorenzo was sixth quickest with a lap time of 2’04.294, less than a tenth of a second away from the third-placed man, and the Spanish rider will start tomorrow’s twenty-lap race from row 2. 

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team #99) – 6th (2’04.294) 
“I’m pleased because we were able to resolve some of our problems and in qualifying I did a really really good lap that allows me to start from the second row: after the way things were this morning, that wasn’t easy. It was a real pity that I missed out on the front row by one-tenth of a second, but in any case tomorrow we are starting from a good position. With new tyres my bike improves a lot, while on used tyres we are still struggling to keep a good pace. I hope the weather conditions improve tomorrow and the sun comes out so we can continue with the same setting that worked well today.”
