Jorge Lorenzo: “I did it because I knew they would become the best.”

Spanish centaur Jorge Lorenzo in an interview with Dazn revealed a backstory of his arrival in Ducati in 2017, after his long experience in Yamaha: “More than for the economic offer, I chose them because I knew they would have the best bike.”

The Mallorcan rider was certain that sooner or later the Borgo Panigale stable would take over in MotoGp: “I didn’t know how long it would take, but it was a bet, like when Hamilton left McLaren for Mercedes. People thought he was crazy and made a mistake, but it was very clear that he would make it. Gigi Dall’Igna’s head is two steps ahead of the others in terms of innovation and technology. Inside the box we work as if it were a Formula 1 team.”
