Ducati’s star signing Jorge Lorenzo believes he can win MotoGP races during his first season with the Bologna team without making any modifications to the 2017 Desmosedici GP17.
The Spanish former champion feels so at home on the bike after three days at Sepang he is confident of victory this season, and more confident when more changes and additions are made through the season.
“I think at this moment, without any modification, we can win races. I don’t know about the championship but we can win races. But to win more races we need to improve some of the points that need improvement and then the result will come together,” Lorenzo said at the track.
“I tried something also with the new bike. We made a simulation with the new bike, even if we didn’t adjust the bike, just made two laps, a small run, and then did the simulation. It was not perfect, the bike was not adjusted very well, but anyway, it was a good thing to make a lot of laps in a row and to understand many things.
“We already changed so many things. I needed to ride the bike a little more aggressively, more on-off with the throttle and also in braking. The bike needs to improve in some areas that Gigi know. But also we have a lot of strong points that we can take profit from.”
