Jorge Lorenzo Motogp Silverstone 2011 gaffe

Yesterday we tried the tire in qualifying and in the first free and really gave us a very good impression, with a very consistent performance, but the change in temperature and weather conditions today did not work well, "said Jorge Lorenzo, one of the few drivers who chose to use a softer compound than the others. "From the second lap I had a hard time putting the bike in the curves because it appeared he was going to lose grip at any time and was even difficult to improve on fourth place, "admitted the champion.

After the results achieved in Brno, Jorge Lorenzo explains that "now the championship is more difficult, but not yet finished and we must continue fighting," he said. "There are still plenty of points to play for points, -175, so we must focus our efforts on winning as many races as possible," said the Yamaha rider, who was also very excited to try the new bike tomorrow 1,000 cc

"We have to forget this race as soon as I think is one of my worst races of the season and even since I came to MotoGP to enjoy the morning with 1,000 cc bike and the best prepared in the 800 cc among which is a new engine, "said Jorge Lorenzo.


Dani Pedrosa, meanwhile, said of his fall that "the truth is that I simply lost the front, I do not know and I can not explain it better," admitted Pedrosa. "In those laps was not yet pressing, was the beginning and knew I had a full tank and had to be careful, because we had prepared over the switch but nothing, I have been and gone already," lamented the Spanish .

"The races are not won until you pass the finish line first, but say we had enough options to overcome and has been watching the race ... well, more disappointed to have missed an opportunity like this again," he said Pedrosa. "I do not know if I could have with Stoner but looking at the race pace is likely, although it does not matter now, as you can not rewind in life is to look forward," said the Honda rider. "When I fell Lorenzo also had a scare ahead, but in my case I fell and that the bike was going well and there seemed to be bad, maybe I was leaning too much or too cold tire" Pedrosa said.
