This now means the Spaniard will ride for a third different manufacturer in the premier class, having to adapt to another type of motorcycle after making the switch from Yamaha to Ducati at the end of 2016. Nonetheless, this is a challenge that doesn’t seem to faze Lorenzo. “Now, everybody is looking at me… I entered the Championship when I was 16, I know how fast I can be on different bikes. I won with Derbi, I rode for Honda, Aprilia, Yamaha, Ducati. I’ve worked for a lot of hours, millions of hours, and I have this capacity. I know what I want to do with the bike and for sure it will be a challenge, but that’s the future.”
