Yamaha M1 – This morning Jorge Lorenzo broke another new unit of his Yamaha M1. The engine used in Jerez and the unit that Lorenzo should use in the 2016 Mugello GP. Now the Yamaha’s rider will adopt the fourth of seven engines available in this season.
Jorge Lorenzo will use a new engine for the 2016 GP of Italy. The old engine had a trouble in the warm-up, with an obvious white smoke started on the starting grid straight and continued until he stopped his M1 to San Donato’s curve. It was the most “fresh” engine available to the M1 of the 2015 world champion. However, Jorge is lucky. Because if the engine had lasted 10 km more, it would break in the Moto GP’s race. The only problem with that? The new engine is the fourth of seven units available to him for the full season. It still looks a bit premature, since we’re only six of 18 races scheduled in 2016.
