MotoGP Jerez Test: Lorenzo fastest from Rossi

Author: Oli Rushby Posted: 04 May 2015

Lorenzo topped the test

Jorge Lorenzo’s domination at Jerez continued today as he posted the fastest time to leave the first post-race test on top.

Close behind the Spaniard was championship leader Valentino Rossi, who lapped just five hundredths slower than Sunday’s race victor as the duo looked to improve their base set up.

Britain’s Cal Crutchlow was third, some three tenths behind the Yamahas with Suzuki’s Aleix Espargaro also impressing in fourth.

Reigning world champion, Marc Marquez set the fifth fastest lap after only completing just two hours of the test to try out a new swingarm on his factory Honda RC213V.
