"When I was 8 years old my father brought me to the track to try the mini motorcycle for fun, since then I never stoped racing. It has becoem my own passion now, not driven by my family."
Lorenzo's drive has been very important, "After a year of injuries I learn to never give up."
He has also had good times. "My best race was in Mugello circuit in 2015, when I broke the record."
"Then 2016 wasn't my best season, I was injured for most of the races then at the last race I managed first position in the qualifying. For me the best thing of 2016 was to succeed in the selection of the Red Bull Rookies Cup."
His favourite subject at school is mechanics and he also enjoys; "Gymnastics, PlayStation and going out with my friends."
"My expectations for 2017 are to give my best for winning the races."
Of course he wants to follow his hero Valentino Rossi. "I want to learn the best technique in order to get good enough results to enter the MotoGP. I like fast corners, and chicanes. The most satisfying thing in a race is the preparation of the bike, together with the team and give my best for winning the race."
"Never give up!"
