Jorge Lorenzo will try to find good feelings again on a motorcycle this weekend at the San Marino GP . The Mallorcan was out of competition in four races due to some back pain and returned to Silverstone, where he could not pass the fourteenth place. Although he is not fully recovered, he will go back to the Honda to try to end with positive results which is undoubtedly his worst season in the premier category.
The technical director of his team, Alberto Puig , commented on the situation of the pilot in a radio interview in the podcast Change the map! , presented by DAZN journalists Ernest Rivera and Izaskun Ruiz ,. Puig has been blunt in his analysis of the bad results and the constant falls and injuries of the number '99'.
" The perspective with Lorenzo right now is zero . That is, if we do a quick review Jorge has not stopped falling, he has never found himself well with the bike. This is an obvious thing, he has said it, and he is not rolling as it should and according to his record, "he said about the situation of the five-time world champion. "Then the last fall he had was very strong, he was down for a long time with his back and I think that Jorge is a 'start over' whenever he wants . Not to ride a motorcycle but to start taking risks, to understand that this is a job where you hurt yourself, "he said.
Puig also indicated that he asked Lorenzo for caution with his reappearance, and advised him to rest well to be at least able to compete this weekend in San Marino. " Lorenzo wanted to shoot in the tees . However, I considered that with the times he was doing and the pain he was having already a week of the race, I thought it was better to take a break and so in the race it would be better He understood and that's why he got off . "
Finally, the Repsol Honda team manager spoke about Lorenzo's future in the team. " I now only think about Jorge's progression from the end of the year to see what his prospects are for 2020." Despite having the Balearic at the moment, he did not rule out a change of drivers for next season. " In Honda we are not prepared for Lorenzo to get off the bike because we do not have spare parts, we have not thought anything. But if that were the case we would react , maybe not a wonderful option but we would look for possibilities," he added in Dani Pedrosa's mentor
