Jorge Lorenzo will start tomorrow’s Spanish GP at Jerez de la Frontera from the second row of the grid after going fourth quickest in qualifying. The Mallorcan rider, who was fifth this morning in FP3 to go straight through into the afternoon’s Q2 session, just missed out on a front row start in third by 0.013s.

“I’m very pleased, not only with my lap time but also with the way we’ve been working since we arrived here in Jerez. We did a great qualifying session and just missed out on the front row by a fraction. With the new parts that Ducati has brought here in Spain we have in part resolved our problems: the Desmosedici GP is not as nervous as before and I can get the best out of its strong points: we must continue in this way. The race is going to be very tight and complicated for everyone, but tomorrow I want to give my all. We must keep focussed and try and make a great start to get ahead of the leading group right from the start.”
