Lorenzo: “Now we can say we are five-time world champions”

Lorenzo: “Now we can say we are five-time world champions”

An incredible season sees Jorge Lorenzo take his fifth World Championship title, his third in the MotoGP™ class.

For the fifth time in his World Championship career, Jorge Lorenzo was crowned champion. The Movistar Yamaha rider taking his third premier class title, all of which have been won on Yamaha machinery. Even with Valentino Rossi starting from the back of the grid, the Italian’s seven point advantage meant Lorenzo couldn’t rest and the Spaniard pushed as hard as he could as soon as the flag dropped. Push and push is all Lorenzo could do, the Spartan able to secure his seventh win of the 2015 season.

Jorge Lorenzo: “Yeah this was one of the toughest races, if not the toughest of my life. The tension and the pressure was very high from the first corner but I tried to push to the limit like I usually do. In the first laps with the new tyre I did all I could. Then with the rear tyre we had some problems as it dropped a lot, especially on the right side and the bike started to move a lot under acceleration and spinning a lot. On corner entry I had to be so careful as I didn’t want to crash. It was very difficult to still keep the 31.5, even the 31 high. I started going 32’0 in the last laps. It was very difficult to keep even this pace. It was very difficult to see the board, half the laps I couldn’t see the board. I just push at the maximum and I gave everything I had on the track from the start, from the first corner to the last one. I didn’t think about anything just pushing and racing and giving the maximum. I could see Marc and Dani recovering, so I said to myself to keep pushing. The effort was worth it as now we can say we are five-time world champions, three times in MotoGP. It’s amazing and we have to enjoy it this afternoon, tonight, this week, there moments are difficult to reach and it will be hard to reach again.”
