Lorenzo: “I‘m only six points behind Vale…”

Lorenzo: “I‘m only six points behind Vale…”

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo is happy with how things are going ahead of the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Lorenzo has every reason to be happy; having found a good set up for his YZR-M1 he has won the last three races and currently holds second place in the championship. He hopes to continue his winning streak this weekend and bridge the six-point gap to his teammate in the overall standings. As Montmelo is a circuit he knows and loves, the Majorcan fancies his chances to add a fourth Catalan premier class victory to his earlier wins in 2010, 2012 and 2013.

Jorge Lorenzo: “Three in a row is a good number of victories. I‘d never thought this would be possible after a strange beginning of the championship with some external problems that affected my riding and also the results. After the win in Mugello, I‘m happy with my performance and also with the team‘s work. Everything is going well right now, I‘m only six points behind Vale and the bike is feeling the way I like. The next stop is Barcelona and this is like my home race. I know Montmelo really well, I‘ve been riding there for many years and I feel at home there. The track is really nice and is also good for Yamaha. I will give the maximum there and try to be prepared for the race so I can fight for the podium again.”
