Lorenzo ‘optimistic as usual’ going into round nine

Thursday, 10 July 2014

Heading into the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland weekend Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo says he feels optimistic and looking forward to racing.

Lorenzo missed the Grand Prix of Germany race last year due to emergency surgery after a fall during FP2. This year the Spaniard hopes to change his fortunes and show the German public his Spartan spirit.

Prior to 2013’s missed race Lorenzo had four consecutive second place finishes at Sachsenring to his name - but he is yet to grace the top step of the podium there.

He commented, “After a disappointing race at Assen where we expected much more I’m right now focused on the next race. Sachsenring is not one of my favorite circuits, especially after last year when I crashed again and I had a problem with the plate fixing my collarbone. After that crash I had to suffer another surgery and that issue changed it all.”

“Despite this season where I don’t feel so lucky for so many different things, I’m looking forward to racing there and trying to revert the situation. The bike is working well and I can feel the support of all the team. I’m pretty optimistic as usual and I will never give up!”
