And it’s hilarious, each race, that something happens to Lorenzo, he came with some excuse:

1- “It was a very tough race, because physically I wasn’t feeling good due to the bronchitis and the antibiotics,” Lorenzo said. “But I tried, I fought all the race. “ – Austin, April 13, 2015

2- Former world champion says he lost half his vision due to ‘helmet foam coming loose’ ‘I was feeling better and better, but suddenly there was something wrong when in the top part of the helmet the foam came loose and came down so I lost half of my vision. ‘I couldn’t see the corners very well and couldn’t concentrate or ride like before and I was losing half a second or more per lap. In a race where, at minimum I could fight for the win, I finished fourth.’ – Qatar, March 31, 2015

3- “It was a shame because in the dry I was the fastest and the most consistent. Also in the wet I was very fast, but unfortunately the track dried and my efforts at the start probably made my tires worst than the Valley and Dani. The weather this time did not help me. 18 points is a lot, but I have a good adjustment in the dry. Dani and Marquez or Ducatis can give me a hand. This is our hope. ” – Motegi, October 11, 2015
