Lorenzo: It's important to keep growing

Jorge Lorenzo will be out to inflict another double blow on his beleaguered MotoGP opponents, by quickly following-up his runaway Silverstone victory with a fourth win of the season at Assen on Saturday.

With Fiat Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi out of action through injury, Lorenzo is now 37 points clear at the top of the standings heading into the 80th anniversary of the Dutch TT - but insists he won't become complacent.

"We have started this run of three races in a row as perfectly as we could have wished and Silverstone was a great race and very important for the championship. But now we move on and we just have to try to continue in the same way,” he said.

“Next we arrive at Assen, my favourite track, and once again we're aiming for the podium.

“The team is working very well together and now we will just concentrate on trying to improve the M1 even more; it's important to keep growing. I've won at Assen in 125 and 250 so I'd really like to try to win in MotoGP!"

"Jorge likes Assen a lot and he and our whole team are going there feeling very strong,” added team manager Wilco Zeelenberg. “We have no worries with the bike and a comfortable cushion in the championship.

“That said we cannot relax and Jorge must stay focused at this busy time of the championship, which I am sure he will. Of course the weather is always a question in Assen but we were lucky in Silverstone so hopefully we will find the same in Holland."
