Puig: "Lorenzo, we understand that the beginning will not be easy"

The head of Repsol Honda is sympathetic to the difficult start of the Balearic Islands and hopes to see him in front when he gets used to the bike.

According to the side of the garage where you look, the Repsol Honda team is a party or a funeral. In Márquez everything is joy after he achieved his first victory in 2019 in Argentina overwhelmingly and with it the leadership of the World Championship by four points over Dovizioso. And in Lorenzo's there are only long faces ... Seven points and many problems of adaptation to his new bike, which must be added setbacks as his mistake in the output of Termas to operate the limiter boxes.

A difficult situation of manage for the formation of the golden wing and, specifically, for his boss Alberto Puig, that must find the middle point between the two extremes: "The balance is good, because last year we left Argentina with zero points and this year With 25, and like our rivals, we will also play our cards With Jorge, the objective was to start well and use his strengths in the first laps and try to keep his pace, but he had a problem and that conditioned his career ".

" In the case of Jorge, we understand that the first part of the season will not be easy, but we hope that once you get used to this bike, you will be fighting again for the positions of head ", Puig adds in statements provided by the team. That is the confidence that he has, the Repsol Honda and Jorge himself, who already demonstrated in Ducati that he is able to overcome a difficult adaptation with success, although everyone expects that it will not take him as long to be competitive with the RC213V as with the Desmosedici.
