French rider Johann Zarco wanted to compare his decision to leave KTM to that of Lorenzo’s to leave Honda (read HERE), emphasizing their different approaches and indicating, in Jorge's excessive attachment, the main reason behind a farewell that arrived too late. Statements that did not entirely leave the Spanish rider – currently Yamaha's test rider in MotoGP – indifferent.
Jorge has definitely taken advantage of that fan's question to express his point of view on the story, underlining how strange it is to receive criticism from Zarco on how he should manage his own affairs. Johann also pointed out that he lives in France and pays taxes there, contrary to Lorenzo who lives in Switzerland, in order to be less exposed to taxation.
Lorenzo's answer was vitriolic: “I don't like to talk about how others manage their finances. Everyone does what they can with what they have... but since someone asked me (and you asked me), I think he should seriously ask himself how come, after ten years in the World Championship, after having become world champion twice, and having signed with KTM, he can’t pay the mortgage on his house...
