Jorge Lorenzo has concluded that after three days of testing at Buriram, he “was never able to be really competitive,” having topped the Sepang test just a few weeks before. The Spaniard, who starts his second season at Ducati, will be in search of his first win for the Italian firm and even though that looked likely after the Malaysian test, Thailand has proved to be somewhat more problematic.
“Unfortunately for me these have been three very complicated days, because I was never able to be really competitive. I didn’t feel at ease on the GP18 and yesterday we also had a few doubts so we decided to do a back-to-back test with last year’s bike,” said the 5-time World Champion.
“As always happens, there are good and bad points with both versions, but at the moment it seems that the GP18 has a greater potential so we will focus on this bike in the next test in Qatar.”
Lorenzo was alienated in 16th place on combined time sheets, having been at the helm of the Sepang MotoGP test. If this shows anything, it could be that Lorenzo’s season could well be a lot more enigmatic than was previously thought.
