(cafetheology.org) – The MotoGP racing weekend in Spielberg decided Jorge Lorenzo almost two weeks ago as his "best weekend so far with Ducati". From the first row, the Spaniard missed the podium and finished fourth, but measured against the gap of 6.6 seconds he showed in relation to the direct competition the to date strongest Rennspace. The expectations for Silverstone are correspondingly high. Here, Lorenzo was very successful in the past with Yamaha. With three MotoGP victories (2011, 2012, 2013) he leads the statistics. In the past two years, however, the 30-year-old has not been so smooth on the British traditional circuit: "In 2015, I was a long way from Valentino (Rossi) and finished fourth With the cool tires and the temperatures … "it was enough for eighth place, he remembers. Silverstone still belongs to one of his favorite tracks. All the more excited, Lorenzo shows how he can cut off with the Ducati here. "After a very positive test at Misano, where I was very fast, I am really curious how the Ducati works on this track," admits Lorenzo. This week the Spaniard completed a one-day test with Teamkollege Andrea Dovizioso in Misano.New Aero fairing also in SilverstoneDort the team had not made any major changes to the bike or tested new parts. However, Lorenzo continues to make progress with the Desmosedici: "We were concentrating on testing different tires and settings so we could have a base on Friday, apart from that, I felt good right from the start, was fast and steady "Says the Ducati driver." As in Brno and Spielberg, he wants to go back into Silverstone again with the Aero panel. While Ducati's privateer Danilo Petrucci has not been able to cope with this, Lorenzo seems to feel more and more comfortable with it. "It's hard for him because he's bigger," he says about Petrucci's problems. "For me, it's okay, the wind on the shoulders is stronger, but I've always been someone who wanted more front contact than the rest." This is particularly exhausting on the 5.9-kilometer, very fluid and fast track in Silverstone Lorenzo can not be frightened. The Ducati is a physically very demanding machine anyway: "You must use all your strength to drive a good lap time and be fast." On Sunday it will certainly be hard, but Lorenzo knows: "My form is good, perhaps better than ever." The condition of the circuit is much more worried. Already last year many MotoGP pilots criticized the numerous ground shafts on the course. "It was not possible for me to feel really comfortable, I had been struggling with the waves, the cool conditions came with the hard tires, this time Michelin brought softer tires Is good, but the asphalt is the same.
