Jorge Lorenzo took his second podium for Ducati last week at Aragón. More importantly, he led the first 15 laps of the race, and ultimately finished just two seconds after race winner Marc Marquez (Honda). Aragón is not known as a good track for Ducati.
The Motegi round in Japan is coming up in less than three weeks, and Lorenzo likes his chances there. Lorenzo won at Motegi in 2013 and again in 2014, while also standing on the podium in 2015. He says it is one of his favorite tracks, and the Ducati goes well there.
What do you think? It has been a long, hard slog for Lorenzo this year, but we have seen his old speed emerge more than once. The old Lorenzo could take the lead at the start of the race, run away and hide (on his Yamaha) on a good day. Are we ready to see him do the same on a Ducati?
