Jorge Lorenzo has admitted that he wasn’t impressed with his performance in the first two free practice sessions in Aragon on Friday.
The reigning MotoGP champion clocked the fifth-fastest time in the first free practice session, but fared worse in the second free practice session as he finished with the seventh-fastest time.
Lorenzo, who has won the Aragon Grand Prix for the last two years, admitted that he will have to be faster on Saturday in order to have a chance of extending his winning streak in the race on Sunday.
“All in all it wasn‘t a good day,” he said. “Tomorrow we want to try a new setting and improve the electronics and let‘s see if we can be much faster.”
The Spaniard admitted that he could have done better in the morning session, but a bad rear tyre stopped him from setting a faster time.
“In the morning it wasn‘t bad, I probably had the second fastest pace, but I had a bad rear tyre,” he said.
The afternoon practice session proved much more troublesome for Lorenzo as he endured more tyre issues, which resulted in a disappointing performance.
“In the afternoon we struggled and we tried various different tyres,” he said. “The front medium tyres gave a lot of vibrations in the corners and the other option, the softer one from the morning that had a lot of laps, was the one that gave me good confidence in the last free practice.”
