The Spaniard has won both in the wet, and in the dry at Le Mans, both by impressive margins. In 2009, Lorenzo judged it to perfection for a 17 second victory margin in mixed conditions, then in 2016, he was victorious by over 10 seconds. In Jerez this season, the number 99 looked to have rediscovered his mojo, leading comfortably in the opening stages. Will the 31-year-old carry this positive form over and battle for the podium on board his GP18 this weekend?
