After starting from 8th in Assen, Lorenzo is back on qualifying form but concerned by the pace shown by the Repsol Honda duo. "Impressive, it seems the Honda has no problems,” said Lorenzo. “They’re able to brake later and accelerate very soon. It will be tough to stay with them, I am the first Yamaha to do a 1’20 in this track so I am very happy with this lap time. I did my best and I didn’t get even close to them. I think our goal is to try to get the podium, the victory will be difficult but you never know. The podium is definitely achievable."
