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 Fiat Yamaha Team unveiled its new 2010 livery today, on the morning of the first MotoGP test of the pre-season in Sepang, Malaysia. The championship-winning team will field the same line-up as last year with World Champion Valentino Rossi and runner-up Jorge Lorenzo once again spearheading its attack.
The two-day test begins today, 4th February, the first of three pre-season tests before the first race at Qatar on 11th April.
