Movistar Yamaha MotoGP‰Ûªs Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi ended the third and final day of MotoGP testing in Valencia on a positive note, finishing third and fifth in today‰Ûªs session times.
Similar to yesterday, the seven hour long session started with a completely drenched track, forcing the team to wait for conditions to improve before heading out.
With a little more than four hours remaining Lorenzo decided to join the action. He quickly picked up the pace and moved to the top of the standings after his 14th lap, clocking a 1‰Ûª31.464.
Using this as a benchmark, Lorenzo spent the rest of the session preparing for next year‰Ûªs season, as the pace noticeably quickened towards the end of the session. Though he was unable to beat his time from Monday, the Spaniard showed improvement in his times and signed the 2014 season off with a positive feeling.
He completed 64 laps in total and his best efforts of a 1'31.164 put him in third place in today‰Ûªs testing results, just 0.191s off the front.
‰ÛÏIn general I‰Ûªm quite satisfied, because we tried some things we couldn‰Ûªt try yesterday and it was slightly better." Lorenzo said. "The new parts are not a really big improvement but they‰Ûªre a step forward, so I am happy about this test.
"It's been a long and tough season but it's not yet over for me: in few days I'll fly to Indonesia for some promotional activities and after that I will take the occasion to spend some days off in Bali with friends.
"In December I will participate in a car race and after that, finally, I will head to a sunny place for Christmas. In the meantime I will work hard to be back in 2015 stronger and ready for the new season.‰Û
