The former world champion crashed out of Qatar and then jumped the start at Austin due to „mosquitos” on his visor, but Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo is in a big hurry to catch up the points deficit to Marc Marquez at this weekend’s Argentine MotoGP.
Lorenzo has just six points from a possible 50 so far and he sits on 16th place after the disaster at Austin, Texas.
“Obviously it’s not the beginning of the season I had dreamed of, but I’m quite confident that we can revert the situation. It’s not easy to swallow what happened at Austin but I always try to get the positive thing even if we are in trouble”, said Lorenzo.
“I’m just thinking about Argentina and I’m really looking forward to racing as soon as possible there. Staying on track is the best way to forget and I think our championship is going to kick off over there. I think I’m going to be much more stimulated in front of the Argentinian fans and finally we will achieve a normal race.”
“That track is a new one in the championship and the first ever visit to Termas de Rio Hondo. That’s why we need to improve in a rush from Friday and try to stay calm and concentrate to get the best pace as soon as possible with the bike. Just a few riders could test in Argentina last year so I guess the inconvenience of learning the circuit is almost the same for everyone.”
“Hopefully we will enjoy that track and we will get a good result before we start racing in Europe. From my side I will arrive with plenty of energy after resting and training hard in Mexic”, added Lorenzo.
