MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo left the official testing session at Estroil feeling very pleased with the performance of the latest Ohlins race products.

Lorenzo had been struggling for speed in the corners on his M1 in the first three races of the season, but new the new Ohlins forks have given him a great deal of confidence.

The Spaniard feels the new Ohlins race products work well with the existing Yamaha chassis, and using them in the next race will make his bike more competitive.

He explained: "Now we have found something with the chassis set up that works much better so I feel comfortable again.

"I think we can be faster with the corners now so I am looking forward to going to France to keep fighting for more podiums."

Despite lacking the pace of the Repsol Honda bikes, Lorenzo has managed to secure two second-place finishes and a victory in his first three races, pushing him to the top of the championship standings.
