Lorenzo: “It‘s a place I love to race at”

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo is hoping to make it five wins in a row at the Motul TT Assen.

The team is in high spirits after Jorge Lorenzo continued his dominating form in Montmelo and claimed his fourth victory in a row, signing off the weekend by breaking the record for the amount of consecutive laps led by a racer.

Lorenzo has also enjoyed numerous successes at the TT circuit. He has won at this circuit four times in total; securing a 125cc win in 2004, 250cc wins in 2006 and 2007 and a MotoGP win in 2010. The Dutch track is listed as one of his favourites, despite him not being a fan of its unpredictable climate.

He aims to close the one point gap to his teammate and take over the lead in the championship. The previous four rounds have been proof that Lorenzo and his YZR-M1 are in top shape and the Spaniard is eager to continue his winning streak this weekend and claim his fifth victory in a row.

Jorge Lorenzo: “Assen is maybe one of my two or three favourite tracks. I have good feelings there and also a few bad memories. Overall it‘s a place I love to race at. First of all because it is a track especially designed for motorbikes so the layout is amazing. The circuit is so fast and I love some of the high-speed corners there. I arrive in a very good shape after achieving four wins in a row and I look forward to racing in Assen! The last race in Barcelona was very tight at the end and Vale showed that he is also in a great shape. The bike is performing really well and I think Assen will suit us perfectly, but you never know. The forecast in Holland is always unpredictable so we need to wait and see if it‘s going to rain as usual or not.”
