Lorenzo axlar Rossis mantel

På pallen fick spanjoren sällskap av italienaren Andrea Dovizioso (Honda) och märkeskollegan Ben Spies, amerikanen som vann Superbike VM i fjol (under sin första säsong i mästerskapet).

Här följer Jorge Lorenzos kommentarer till helgens race;

– This was an important day for me and an important win, because I felt so strong and I enjoyed riding my Yamaha so much.

– I had a different feeling today; I felt that it was going to be a good race. It was quite hard to be fast at the start and the first lap with Dani was difficult, but once I got past him I felt very relaxed and comfortable. I thought he would follow me for a bit longer but he didn’t and then I was on my own, so I just had to focus on myself; I didn’t even know who was behind me! I never dreamt of taking three wins from five races but here we are and I am feeling very strong mentally at this moment.

– I want to thank my team, Yamaha and Bridgestone for this victory. The Beatles celebration was something fun for the fans, I love their music and I thought it was nice to make a homage to them, since we’re in England!”
