Lorenzo enjoys Aragon experience

MotoGP championship leader Jorge Lorenzo finished third and second in the two Friday practice sessions - dry, then wet - held at the new Aragon circuit in Spain.

The Fiat Yamaha rider, who starts round 13 with a 63 point lead over fellow Spaniard Dani Pedrosa, enjoyed the new track and backed the increase in practice sessions.

Lorenzo's goal now is to improve his grip in the dry.

"I really like this track, it's so fun to ride and it is quite different, a new challenge. It is interesting to ride the M1 here after coming here on an R1," said the #99. "We are lacking a bit of grip but I hope we can improve our setting more tomorrow so we can make another step.

"Unfortunately it rained this afternoon but it was good to get the chance to try our wet setting and it seems our bike was okay in these bad conditions.

"It was good to have two practice sessions today; even though the overall amount of time is the same over four days, four separate sessions makes it easier to get to know the circuit and what we need in order to be fast here."

"We used our standard rain set-up this afternoon and it was working well so we have no complaints about this," added team manager Wilco Zeelenberg. "We hope it's dry tomorrow so we have the chance to keep working on our race package, because it looks like Sunday will be better weather."
