Jorge Lorenzo romped to a dominant victory in Mugello and given his struggles at the previous Grand Prix, at Le Mans, the Yamaha rider knew that it was crucial to bounce back to form in Italy. This weekend the reigning world champion will look to maintain his Mugello momentum at Montmelo.
When asked how it felt to have won in Italy Lorenzo said:
“It was a very important after the unexpected place at Le Mans and we wanted to put away this bad feeling and we got it,” said Lorenzo. “From the beginning [of Mugello weekend] we were real competitive, not just me but Cal and Valentino were so fast, and the rest were coming but finally we could manage to win again like last year. Hopefully at this track we can conserve this good performance and try to win again if it possible or finish on the podium.”
Lorenzo, a double world champion in both the 250cc class and MotoGP, knows that consistency wins title and finishing on the rostrum will be the key to challenging for a third premier class crown this year.
