Since his retirement from competition, the three-time Motogp world champion Jorge Lorenzo has become strong in social networks either via Twitter or Instagram where he accumulates between both accounts more than 2.5 million followers And that has made him an influencer especially on Instagram where he posts videos and photos in different tourist paradises or gets into luxury cars accompanied by an assistant who is in charge of making the production and shooting. And being these days on vacation in the Maldives has set the paddock on fire again with a derogatory comment on Cal Crutchlow’s work
, the rider who has replaced him as a Yamaha tester, and that several of his former colleagues on the grill have not wanted to ignore and have expressed solidarity with the English.
It all started with a post on Instagram from the official account of the motogp championship on Sunday night with a sequence of Crutchlow’s crash in turn 2, the same one where several of the official riders fell, and the following comment: “Crutchlow was not the one The only one who was surprised by Turn 2 today !. Several riders found themselves in the gravel as the sun and temperatures went down! Fortunately all the drivers are fine! ” .
And Jorge Lorenzo from the Maldives decided to launch a pujita on the work of the English: “I already said it.”
The response of two other pilots who are usually very active on social networks and take them personally, Jack Miller and Aleix Espargaró, it has not been made wait. “Lorenzo, how about you grow up, buddy? Seriously, stop acting like a kid “wrote Miller, a close friend of Crutchlow. Also forceful is the comment of Aleix Espargaró, with whom he also shared a manager for many years. “I’d rather be a good human being than a champion! I love you Cal! “.
Crutchlow’s toughest defender has been his assistant and son of the legendary Randy Mamola, former pilot Dakota Mamola, attacking Lorenzo: “And someone who has 15 kilos more says so”, referring to the lack of physical form, one of the reasons hinted at by Yamaha why they no longer trusted him in 2020.
And already this Monday Jorge Lorenzo has insisted on picking up the phone again and has answered both again publicly: “How about Jack if you turn off the phone, stop doing ‘stoppies’ and start winning some races? You are already 26 years old. Focus on the important things and don’t waste your talent “ Y “Aleix, better be both, right? I assure you that it is a wonderful sensation and I hope one day you can try it! ”.
But the thing between Lorenzo and Espargaró has not ended here, both writing in English. Aleix has laughed at a joke in networks in which Lorenzo asked his followers if they wanted him to share with them his impressions of the Qatar test and the vote had been 59.3% that no, something that has later been discovered that it was a trolling of forum cars to the Balearic Islands.
And Jorge Lorenzo has made a screenshot of the record of Aleix Espargaró, also laughing: “0 victories in 18 years Really? I knew that your manager is a beast (Albert Valera, the manager of both) but the fact that you are still in MotoGP is simply magical. At least Cal and Jack won a few races. ” And for the moment here the thing has remained this Monday in this battle that has derived in to see who is more ‘hater’.
The precedent of the bad vibes between Lorenzo and Crutchlow It is set in November, when it was learned that Yamaha was dispensing with Lorenzo’s services and had Crutchlow as a tester. Then the Mallorcan said that the Japanese “exchanged gold for bronze” and at a press conference in Portimao the Englishman explained that “I totally respect Lorenzo as a runner, five times world champion. He will tell you a lot that he is a five-time world champion, but he is incredible as a rider and he is very, very special on the bike. But that doesn’t mean he’s a great tester. It’s as simple as that”.
“What he said, I can bear it, but You have to take the things he says with a bit of skepticism because it comes from a guy who goes around saying things to people all the time. In the end, I don’t care. I am happy, I am happy to have things to do, I have a family, I am happy, I have friends. Obviously he’s bored at homeCal settled.
Y Lorenzo answered in a Stories: “To declare that I am not a good tester is like saying that the earth is square. Both the engineers and the riders who pitched with me at Yamaha and Ducati know my ability to evolve a bike and help make it faster and faster. If we only talk about numbers, it is a fact that since my departure both teams have progressively decreased the number of victories per season ”. And he added about a photo of Crutchlow: “As for Cal, he was one of the drivers with the fewest wins and the most falls in the last 10 years … I think he will be a great tester. To check the hardness of the bike ”.
