MotoGP champion and retiree, Jorge Lorenzo, is probably having the time of his life now enjoying all his fame and fortune after retiring from the world of motorsports last season. However, the recent gossips and talks have sort of indicated that there’s a slight chance that we might see the five-time world champion back in racing.
Things have finally been clarified by Jorge Lorenzo himself on his official Twitter page (which you can also see that he has been very active replying to a lot of comments). One of his fans posted something in Spanish which roughly translates to “Lorenzo’s humility has taken men like Valentino very far, that is why today you are only a test driver, not like others who still race. Money is not everything.”
La humildad no gana campeonatos, si no habría millones de campeones humildes. No corro porque ya no me apetece, no porque no pueda. Como probador me siento feliz, realizado, me cuidan bien y dispongo de mucho tiempo libre. ¿Qué más puedo pedir de la vida? https://t.co/KRaC1YjKZl

Lorenzo’s response is very clear and precise, just like his days on the Yamaha M1. “Humility doesn’t win championships, otherwise there would be millions of humble champions. I don’t race because I don’t feel like it anymore, not because I can’t. As a tester I feel happy, fulfilled, well looked after, and have a lot of free time. What more can I ask for from life?”
What else can you say about the man? He has won multiple titles and now, he’s enjoying his life with fancy clothes, expensive supercars, and beautiful company. We completely agree when he says, “What more can I ask from life?” You do you, Jorge. Be happy and forget the haters, they don’t have a limited-edition Lamborghini.
