At Tuesday’s event organised by sponsor Hot Wheels, Lorenzo was quizzed by a crowd of inquisitive children in an informal press conference, before meeting a lucky few for photos.
“I had to be careful!” joked the 2010 and 2012 MotoGP™ title winner. “Some of the questions were a bit tricky, but I tried to answer them all.”
Amongst the revelations to the young audience, Lorenzo admitted that finishing a race and winning was what he enjoys most about competition and that Michael Jordan was his childhood idol.
He also admitted that he has on rare occasions been scared whilst riding and that depending on the results of his races he either enjoys watching them back on video – when he has won – or does not watch them at all, when things have not gone his way.
