Lorenzo: “I have never won in Germany"

Lorenzo: “I have never won in Germany'

The Dutch GP ended Lorenzo’s run of wins and he is reserved in his predictions for Germany, where he has never won.

Sachsenring is one of just a handful of current tracks, alongside COTA and Termas de Rio Hondo, that Lorenzo has not claimed victory at in the MotoGP™ class. The shortest track on the calendar, Sachsenring has seen the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider finish second on four occasions and a third in 2014. Before Assen many expected Lorenzo to continue to run away at the front, but Rossi stopped these predictions as the pair battle for the title.

Sitting ten points behind his teammate in the standings, Lorenzo will once again be looking to close that gap and edge ever closer to his third MotoGP™ title. Riders will be hoping to avoid repeating the dramatic start 2014’s race which saw the majority of the grid start from the pits, Lorenzo forced to run wide as they exited.

Jorge Lorenzo: “In theory Sachsenring is a worse track for us than Assen. It never suited the Yamaha perfectly in the past so it‘s a very challenging circuit. I have never won in Germany, so I‘m keen to get on the top step at least once. You never know, maybe it could happen this season because it‘s been a bit strange. I love Assen but this year something changed and I didn‘t find the perfect set up to be more competitive. During the race I struggled more than I expected but we understood how to solve it for the future. Sachsenring is a good racetrack with a nice atmosphere and a lot of fans. In the past I was close to winning a couple of times but I never did it. This year our bike‘s performance is good so I think we can achieve higher goals than in the recent years.”
