Lorenzo won the Italian MotoGP at the Mugello circuit on Sunday (03/06/2018) night local time. This is his first win with Ducati, since joining last season.
Despite victory, Lorenzo admitted his future with Ducati is still gray. Previously Ducati did provide a kind of ultimatum for Lorenzo immediately get results.
In the previous five series, Lorenzo has not even climbed the podium. The best result is the sixth finish in France. The Spanish rider finished 15th and 11th in Argentina and Austin, then failed to finish in Qatar and Spain.
Lorenzo admitted disappointed with the treatment of Ducati. He felt unbelievable that his request related to motorcycle spare parts updates, one in a fuel tank, was late given.
This statement while strengthening the rumors of his future.
“I may have many drawbacks, but honesty is one of my best characters, if I say something, it’s true and not a reason like many people say,” Lorenzo told GPOne.
“Gigi (Dall’Igna – General Manager) tried to give me a motor that was closer to my style, they succeeded in some aspect and failed in some others.It was there from me and coincidentally, when the new spare parts arrived I got the victory, ”
“I can accept any criticism, but not when they say I have reason, so I hope from now on people will believe in me Ducati made a big investment in me I did not move for money but to win.
“There is only a 10% difference between Yamaha and Ducati’s salary.” On the other hand, there is a lack of confidence in technical terms, I think Gigi, also (Team Manager – Davide) Tardozzi and (Sports Director – Paolo ) Ciabatti, I want to stay with Ducati, “he added.
