FIRST LOOK: Lorenzo at Ducati

Triple MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo makes Ducati debut.
Triple MotoGP champion made his Ducati MotoGP debut during the start of post-season testing at Valencia on Tuesday morning.

The Spaniard, a Yamaha rider since his 2008 premier-class debut, is the most high-profile rider to join Ducati since former team-mate Valentino Rossi in 2011.

Lorenzo won four races this season on his way to third in the championship, while Ducati took its first race victories since 2010 courtesy of a win each for Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso.

Yamaha has given Lorenzo permission to test for Ducati at Valencia, but not at a private Jerez test later this month. After Wednesday, Lorenzo will thus have to wait until Sepang at the end of January for his next Desmosedici appearance.

JL is looking great, his smooth metronomic style has transferred to the Ducati without issue it seems. I have never seen JL looking so happy and relaxed, smiling all day. Certainly a foreboding sight for his rivals! He only did one installation lap on the GP17 right at the end of the sesssion.

SoSlo: that gap is only going to get larger as factory honda and yamaha make their usual gains
I don't think so. Lorenzo is 4 tenths slower than his fastest race time from Sunday on the Yamaha.
