LOS ANGELES, CA (May 7, 2012) – Yamaha Factory Racing rider Jorge Lorenzo continued his unbroken podium record at Estoril today. Starting from fourth on the grid he was quickly into second at the first corner and held the position to the line after a determined effort to stay with race leader Casey Stoner. The Rockstar Energy rider’s consistent lap pace meant Stoner was never more than one second ahead until the final lap and at times just 0.2 seconds in front. Lap three of the race saw Lorenzo deliver a new fastest lap record for Estoril of 1’36.909. He now heads to Le Mans in two weeks time just one point adrift of the Championship lead.
“I’m happy with this second position because I was expecting to fight for third or fourth and not the victory,” said Rockstar Energy’s Lorenzo. “The bike improved a lot from the practices so it was possible. I had two problems, at the start I used a lot of clutch and burnt it so for two or three laps it was burning and I lost a lot of distance from Casey. Also at the end Casey was very strong. After this everything was working well and I made a fastest lap, which is not very common for me. We are just one point behind Casey, hopefully we can improve something on the bike tomorrow and be in front again.”
The next event for Rockstar Energy’s Jorge Lorenzo is round four of the 2012 MotoGP Championship in Le Mans at the Grand Prix of France on May 20th.
