MotoGP 2019 - How many races before Lorenzo wins?

Its the last race of the year this weekend and then straight into testing. Arguably the biggest rider move this year is Lorenzo to Repsol Honda, the question is;

At which race do you think Lorenzo will win his first race? Or will he struggle for the first year? ( I assume that Honda will have learnt from watching Ducati and will have a modified tank ready by day 2 of testing..)

i think the switch from YAM to DUC gave JLo a massive jump in terms of being able to adapt to machinery.
next on to honda. ... yeah, rossi has been on all 3 brands too , but not in the same era.

depsite that, i think JLo will struggle with the honda first, since it's probably somewhat a MM - turd. that MM can ride well, since he's been riding it exclusively. What did Pedro pull on it?

JLo will have to risk a lot.

i say race 7.
