Lorenzo: “I‘m feeling stronger and I‘m in a great shape”

Lorenzo: “I‘m feeling stronger and I‘m in a great shape”

Jorge Lorenzo acknowledges the importance of his back-to-back wins as a confidence boost ahead as he looks ahead to the #ItalianGP.

Lorenzo is eager to get back aboard his YZR-M1. He impressed with his blistering pace at Jerez and Le Mans and is determined to keep the momentum going at the Italian track, where he fought a sensational battle with Marquez last year. The four-time World Champion has a six-consecutive podium run at Mugello in the premier class to his name, consisting of three wins in 2011, 2012, and 2013 and three second places in 2009, 2010, 2014. The challenging circuit also saw him take a first place in the 250cc class in 2006 and a 250cc second place in 2005.

Jorge Lorenzo:
“Le Mans was a confirmation that I‘m feeling stronger and that I‘m in a great shape. Claiming a second victory in a row was very important to me and the team in order to know for certain that Jerez wasn‘t a one-time event. In Le Mans we got the pace and the rhythm to achieve another win. The YZR-M1 is a nice bike to ride and permits me to ride in the manner I like. In Le Mans we were able to do a perfect job during the whole weekend, as in Jerez, and now we look forward to racing again in Mugello. The track is maybe one of my favorites throughout the MotoGP calendar so I‘m eager to race there. In the past I got so many wins in Mugello and it‘s a suitable circuit for both me and the YZR-M1. It‘s fluid, with many uphill and downhill sectors and amazing, long high-speed corners such as Arrabbiata 1 and 2. I will try to fight again for the podium here and keep this nice momentum going!”
