Ducati’s departing MotoGP superstar Jorge Lorenzo says he now has a clear setup direction to follow after his somewhat surprising maiden win for the team at Mugello.
Lorenzo led the Italian GP from start to finish and looked like the rider who had won three world titles, not the struggling Spaniard who had tantrumed (if that’s even a word) his way through the past 18 months.
“Victory at Mugello confirmed everything that we have believed in since the start of the season and that I have been saying over and over again: we weren’t that far away from being competitive and victorious. Now we have a clear direction to follow and every time I get on the bike I feel better, so Montmeló will be another good opportunity to confirm that we can always fight for important results,” said Lorenzo.
“Now that everyone knows what my future for next season is, I can safely say that I’m totally focussed on the Catalan GP, and that I’ll be giving my utmost for the Ducati Team, aware that the win in Italy has done wonders for my morale. Montmeló is a circuit that I love, it’s my home track and this always provides that little bit of extra motivation.”
