Ducati MotoGP Team sincerely believes Jorge Lorenzo will be competitive from day one. The Italian outfit is confident that the Spaniard could win in his debut race with the new team. Jorge Lorenzo impressed Ducati officials during the first winter testing session in Valencia.
Lorenzo has conquered the Qatar GP on three separate occasions. The Ducati also has not been bad around the circuit. In 2016, both Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso led the race for a while. Dovizioso was defeated by a fraction of a second, while Iannone crashed out.
Primary goal of both Jorge Lorenzo and Ducati MotoGP team is to get back to winning ways. The duo will want to compete for the 2017 MotoGP Championship. Last time Ducati won the MotoGP Championship was with Casey Stoner back in 2007.
Jorge Lorenzo wants to defeat Valentino Rossi in every aspect. The Spaniard would like to win where the Italian suffered. It is important to note that the Ducati Rossi rode and the Ducati provided to Lorenzo are extremely different race machines.
Valentino Rossi is the only rider to win the last race of the season for Honda and joins a new team Yamaha to win the first race of a new season. Jorge Lorenzo faces a similar possibility, he won 2016 Valencia GP with Yamaha and if he wins 2017 Qatar GP for Ducati his name will go alongside Valentino Rossi.
