Jorge Lorenzo is back on track and did it in Misano on the occasion of the ProDay, organized in partnership with Vmoto Soco, which in the paddock of the track named after Marco Simoncelli inaugurated its store inside Michele Pirro's Garage51. Lorenzo rode on a Yamaha R1 and we took advantage of this opportunity to interview him talking about several different topics.

From the possible agreement with Aprilia at the beginning of the season, to his comment on the decision by Vinales, also talking about the future of MotoGP with eight Ducatis on the track from 2022. As always, Jorge was direct, precise and absolutely on the ball in expressing his ideas about a world that has seen him for years play the role of undisputed star. But now MotoGP, at least in the role of rider, is part of his past.

"It's a closed chapter, now I want to enjoy life - Lorenzo said about MotoGP - When you are in a high-level sport you have to think about that 24 hours a day, you have to give up many things and be very concentrated. It takes sacrifices, but now I don't want to do that anymore. I'm lucky, life has been good to me and I want to enjoy it because we have only one "

Jorge also talked to us about the missed agreement with Aprilia and expressed his opinion on Vinales, a rider who, despite having raced with Yamaha since 2017, has been unable to become world champion.
