Image of the GP (qualifying) : I thought it was Red Bull that gave you wings…

…No, it’s Phillip Island!

In a round full of thrills, spills, alterations,changes and general carnage it was hard to stand out.

Yamaha team rider Jorge Lorenzo managed to do so unwittingly on the way to pole…

Lorenzo and seagull

Lorenzo did more flying than the seagull …Image originally shared on Twitter by MotoGP rider Danilo Petrucci – @Petrux9, re-shown hereas a newsworthy funny under fair use act.

Initially, it looked like everyone might want a deceased seagull wingman as Jorge hit pole originally with the bird attached, but he later improved without it. MotoGP tomorrow will have to make a stop to change bikes, which will make things very interesting, especially if it rains.

Lorenzo has never won at Phillip Island and claimed Australia as a ‘Lorenzoland’, mainly due to Stoner’s recent dominance. Lets face it though, if you can be fast while hitting the scenery there is still a chance the Spaniard can keep the championship alive for another week at least!

Here’s hoping for a good battle.
