2010 Preseason Interview
Everyone expects that the rivalry between you and Valentino will be even stronger this year. How do you plan to manage it?
Jorge Lorenzo: I think our rivalry is not personal, but just limited to the sport area. For me it is normal: we both want to win and we are in the same team. Last year we had a very polite and good relationship with the media and I expect this year to be the same again.
Who is your biggest rival this year and why?
The Tech3 Team is delighted to announce that Raffaele de Rosa and Yuki Takahashi will spearhead the French squad’s exciting new Moto2 world championship project in 2010.
Italian rider de Rosa joins Tech3 having emerged as one of the brightest young talents in Grand Prix racing in 2009. He finished sixth in this year’s 250cc world championship and a series of eye-catching performances earned him the coveted Rooki e of the Year title.
