After a disastrous stop in the pits where his second bike wasn't quite ready that lft him languishing down in 15th place in Sunday afternoon's flag to flag Czech Grand Prix, Ducati Team rider Jorge Lorenzo was back out on track again at the Brno circuit for a one-day test that also saw the presence of all the factory MotoGP teams and several satellite squads.
Lorenzo took advantage of the perfect weather conditions to do important set-up work and back-to-back tests on several new components, while his Italian teammate used the new aerodynamic package, that Jorge raced on Sunday afternoon for the first time.
He completed a total of 55 laps to finish 4th overall.
"Today was perhaps the most important day of the year for me,” he said. “I had an excellent feeling with the bike and am very satisfied. Already in the race weekend we were very competitive but today we improved even more."
"it's true that the track was probably in a better condition than the previous days, but we found some set-up solutions that are better for my riding style and they allowed me to push even harder and go even quicker. My feeling with the new fairing continues to be very good, because it gives me more confidence in the front."
