Jorge Lorenzo against everyone. The former MotoGP rider in recent days has been criticized for some comments on social networks against Cal Crutchlow and colleagues Jack Miller and Aleix Espagarò who had taken his defense.
Jorge Lorenzo: “Zero wins in 18? The fact that you are in MotoGP is magical”
Lorenzo had commented with “I said it” to the news that the British driver has been chosen as his replacement as a tester at Yahama. At that point Jack Miller of the Ducati Lenovo Team intervened to defend his friend: “Lorenzo, what do you think if you grow up, colleague, seriously, stop behaving like a child”. Lorenzo added the dose: “Jack Miller how about turning off the phone, and start winning some races? Now you are 26 years old. Concentrate on what is important and don’t waste your talent”.
As if that weren’t enough, Aleix Espagarò joined the fight, declaring that he prefers to be a good person over victories. Jorge Lorenzo, obviously irritated, replied: “0 victories in 18 years, right? I knew your manager is a beast, but the fact that you are still in MotoGP can be simply magical … at least Cal and Jack have won some races” .
Jorge Lorenzo: “When someone jokes it’s not like me to keep quiet”
Jorge Lorenzo in an interview with AS sent the criticism back to the sender: “I made a comment about Crutchlow’s fall, because what I posted on Instagram a few months ago happened and I wrote in a hilarious way ‘I said it’. Then it happened. for some reason two riders answered me. As is the case with Miller, for what happened in 2019, when he was about to run out in Ducati, and Aleix, for some reasons that I prefer to keep private. They took advantage of this opportunity, with the I’m sorry to defend another driver, to answer me. You know me and, when someone jokes, it’s not like me to keep quiet “.
“I would like a world where people say what they think – the former driver clarified -. This is what I try to be. Before I had to be careful, because I represented many brands and sponsors. Now I don’t have to explain anything to anyone, because even more I am myself and I say what I think. And when someone tries to discredit you or speak ill of you, you have to stop them and tell them that if they follow that path, it also has consequences. It’s my mentality. “
