Valencia 2017 was the last race for Jorge Lorenzo with Yamaha. This is the image that remains of the Majorcan, triumphant at Ricardo Tormo before starting the adventure with Ducati. The Spaniard has come a long way in these years, passing through Borgo Panigale and then Honda, and then returning home, on his M1.
Lorenzo took to the track during this week's shakedown, then he will get back on the bike again tomorrow for the last day of testing in Malaysia. Many observers are wondering, however, when it will be possible to see the Majorcan again in action. The answer seems to be almost certainly on June 7, on the occasion of the GP at the Barcelona circuit.
The news comes from Massimo Meregalli, even if there is still nothing official: "With Yamaha we already had plans to do a wild-card at Barcelona, even before signing with Jorge - said the team manager during an interview with Radio RAI - This opportunity would allow us to try new material for the upcoming season. Now we will see how the tests with Jorge will go. We will definitely consider doing a wild-card race with him. At the moment there is still no confirmation, but we have asked for the possibility to do it. However, we have not yet talked about it definitively with Jorge”.
Meregalli prefers not to say anything official, but we bet that Lorenzo will next be riding the M1 at Barcelona on 7 June?
