The German and Dutch GPs were a nightmare for Lorenzo. In Assen, he gathered a total of 6 points for his 10th place; at the Sachsenring he scored one point for 15th place. The image of Marc Márquez dominating while the current World Champion was crawling around the track with rain tires was devastating. "Well, Marquez passed me on slicks while I was on wets," he defends, then adding quietly: "It is the same Marquez who I beat in Mugello. The circumstances throughout the championship can change. The truth, as I said before, is that I didn’t expect to find myself in such a bad situation with Michelin and cold rain. I'm finding I have confidence issues with the front, when I try to go faster I get surprises that prevent me from going faster. I have to understand if it is a problem of my riding style, which is quite different from the rest, or if it is something else. If so, a specific type of training can help a little, although the bike you use in training is far from a MotoGP bike. But you can learn to feel quickly. Sometimes in life you encounter problems that are unexpected. You can let it go and do nothing and wait for better circumstances, or face them and try to do something."
