Jorge Lorenzo quickest at end of Phillip Island tyre test

Jorge Lorenzo completed his domination of this week’s Bridgestone tyre test in Australia today by setting the fastest time in cool and windy conditions at Phillip Island this afternoon. The Spaniard set his best time of 1.29.068 on the same spec tyre that wreaked havoc during last October’s Phillip Island race. But Lorenzo revealed to MCN that the 2013-race spec tyre was...

Tyres remain the great unknown

JL hated the new rear at low grip Sepang, but no significant issues at high grip, high tyre temp P.I.

I know it's primarily a tyre test but no mention of the electronic side of things. I understood JL was considering reverting to 2013 spec code.

If he has the equipment he needs at his disposal we all know (bar one) he's going to be right in the mix.

NORMAL SERVICE...

       MM pissed the 1st test,DP pissed the 2nd and JL pissed the 3rd.If MM had`n`t been on "holiday"who know`s? I`m guessing VR will be hoping for another 4th,at the end of the year,but I doubt it`ll be as simple as last year.  The Duke`s are slowly ,but surely,being De-Rossified,and are looking considerably better.And as the  year goes on they will improve even more!   Not forgetting AB and SB or the two Espargaro boy`s Gonna be tough to take 4th this season,me think`s. Will be great to see the Ducati`s near the pointy end,something we ain`t seen since the heady day`s of Stoner.Pucka eh?

Quickest..?

Not over the longer distance simulations he wasn't..

Final day long-run average lap times:

Valentino Rossi Yamaha 1m 30.019 (13 laps)

Dani Pedrosa Honda 1m 30.161s (12 laps)       

Cal Crutchlow Ducati 1m 30.340s (17 laps)

Jorge Lorenzo Yamaha 1m 30.505s (24 laps) 

Rossi did 8 laps in the 29's on his run. Pedrosa 3, Cal 1 and Jorge's were all in the 30's.

Seems the De-Lorenzofication of the M1 is coming along nicely.

Yeah but

What tyre construction and compounds were each of them using on their long runs? New tyre, used tyre?

Hard to make any comparisons without all the facts.

And are comparisons worth anything on a tyre test?

What De-Lorenzofication would that be Wosi

When Yamaha have clearly stated development is based around the requirements of their nr.1 rider - Jorge Lorenzo.

Yeah your boy sounds happy. But he's sounded happy with plenty of false dawns over the last few years. I reckon he still might have a hard time defending his 4th place ranking.

Did I cheeky?

Best you go digging for that quote.

The Terrapin performed much as expected 2013. Mainly fighting in the second tier whilst watching the fast boys disappear into the distance. As for Assen, he got rather lucky there didn't he? Much like Misano 2012.
