Lorenzo talks contract options in 'Top Riders' on Sky Sport

Lorenzo talks contract options in 'Top Riders' on Sky Sport

Ahead of the GoPro Grand Prix of Germany at the Sachsenring, Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha) was the guest star on 'Top Riders' - a TV program broadcast on the Italian channel Sky Sport MotoGP HD.

During his interview, the Spanish reiterated his full confidence in Yamaha: "When I renewed with Yamaha I had other options and I was very close to switching teams. This is the truth. You always have curiosity about how you could do with another bike, but for now my desire to compete with the same bike and the same team outweighs this. My dream is to finish my career with Yamaha."

During the interview the relationship with his teammate and title rival Valentino Rossi inevitably came up: "I have great respect for him as a rider, the same as I suppose he feels for me. Ours is a cordial relationship; maybe not friendship, because it is very difficult to have a friendship between rivals seeking the same goal, but the relationship is good."
