Following his controlled win in Sunday’s San Marino MotoGP, Jorge Lorenzo and Yamaha team-mate Ben Spies were back in action for a post-race test at Misano. After running on the 2012 1000cc YZR-M1, the reigning World Champion was particularly pleased with the progress made so far.
The two bikes tested were the same as those used at Brno last month, albeit with small modifications to setups and electronics in order to cater for the different circuit.
“It’s been a little bit more difficult here than Brno, which is a very fast track,” Lorenzo said. “Misano is a little bit slower, so the difference between the 800 and the 1000 is much smaller. It’s difficult to understand the riding style you must use straight away.
“We’ve made a lot of progress in a couple of hours and the bike has a lot of potential. I’m very excited about the future. We’ve been working on the electronics to help in the braking areas, but mainly I’ve been getting used to the riding style of the bike and also adapting it to my riding.”
With Spies managing a best lap time of 1:34.3, Lorenzo topped the two-bike timesheet with 1:33.7, with his quickest race weekend lap being 1:33.906.
