Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Three-time Mo­togp world cham­pion Jorge Lorenzo says he found it easy to drive an F1 car fol­low­ing his test with Mercedes back in Oc­to­ber. The Spa­niard drove a 2014-spec car at Sil­ver­stone. “I ex­pected it to be much harder to drive be­cause I tried an F2 two days be­fore at Snet­ter­ton and that was very dif­fi­cult to drive,” said Lorenzo. “The en­gine was very ner­vous and the steer­ing was very hard. But when I tried the sim­u­la­tor at Mercedes I was like ‘wow, this is much eas­ier – maybe the sim­u­la­tor is too easy’ but no. I was very quick from the be­gin­ning and in the dry it was very easy.”
