Lorenzo 'really excited' to be on front row
6 November 2010 – World Champion Jorge Lorenzo will join pole-sitter Casey Stoner on the Valencia Grand Prix front row on Sunday, with the Yamaha rider very much hoping for a final 2010 victory in front of a partisan home crowd.
“I'm really excited and proud to be on the front row in front of the Spanish crowd at this home race,” he commented after the session.
“Especially racing here; the last race is always special and everyone wants to do well. I tried my best to make the pole position today but Casey was really very quick today, I couldn't beat him.
“Let's see if we can keep in contact with him tomorrow in the race, if we can stay with him we can challenge.
“We will try the maximum as always. X-Lite has honoured me with this special helmet and I am so proud of it, it looks like diamonds in the sunshine! Thanks to everyone and I hope to make a good race in it tomorrow.”
