It will be a row 5 start for Jorge Lorenzo at tomorrow’s Valencia GP, who finished the morning session in seventeenth place. The Spanish rider, despite setting an excellent time of 1’31.900 in Q1, was unable to get through into Q2 after being edged out of second place by Viñales by just 42 thousandths of a second.
Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team #99) – 13th (1’31.900)
“We went out on track for Q1 without any real data because in all the other sessions the track was wet. I think I did a good time, which was quite a surprise, and for just a few thousandths of a second I couldn’t get into Q2. In the end it was Viñales who knocked me off the top 2 spots in Q1 and then he set pole, so for this reason I think that if I had gone through I would have been a lot further up the grid. In any case it’s highly likely that tomorrow’s race will be held in the rain and we’ll find completely different conditions to today so we’ll try and bring home the best possible result.”
