KE A VIC­TORY Lorenzo: Du­cati, what Du­cati?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Jorge Lorenzo has ad­mit­ted that he’s do­ing his best to ig­nore the po­ten­tial of the Du­cati GP16 ma­chine that he’ll move to for 2017 – de­spite spend­ing much of Sun­day’s race up close and per­sonal with the bike.

In­stead, he re­mains adamant that the time to start con­sid­er­ing what his fu­ture will bring can only come once he com­pletes his cur­rent and fi­nal sea­son with long-term part­ner Yamaha.

“I will be happy in six months when I jump on an­other bike, but that’s in the fu­ture. It’s a long way away, and I want to fin­ish in the best way with Yamaha by fight­ing un­til the end for the cham­pi­onship and for as many vic­to­ries as pos­si­ble.

“This year, I hope that there’s no other track that the Du­cati can win at, only fin­ish sec­ond or third! I can re­duce the dif­fer­ence that way with Marc – but I do hope next year that it can win at all the tracks!”
