Lorenzo needs 'as many points as possible'

The Spaniard still has a 56 point lead over Dani Pedrosa, but it is slowly coming down.
Jorge Lorenzo has targeted a return to the MotoGP podium as he continues to consolidate his gradually slimming lead in the overall standings.

The Spaniard finished off the podium last time out at Motorland Aragon with a run to fourth, a result that ensured it was the first Yamaha-less podium since Valencia 2007.

Nonetheless, Lorenzo is confident of a better showing at Yamaha's home circuit in Japan, the championship leader having won around the Twin-Ring Motegi circuit last season.

"Motegi is Yamaha's home and I always feel proud to ride there. Last year I got my first victory at this track in MotoGP and it was one of the best moments of the season. I like Motegi and I think it can be great for us also this season.

“The main goal is to get back on the podium and continue getting as many points as possible. We will try to be fast from Friday and start this run of three races as well as we can.”

Lorenzo commands a 56 point lead over Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa with five rounds remaining.

You'd be a brave man to put your money on him not being back on the podium to be honest. Its gonna be interesting to see if Ducati have cracked their front end woes and can be at the front again for the last races or if they just clicked with the last track and will be struggling again. 46 will be hoping its the former. And as for Rossi - its also gonna be interesting to see what he has to offer at Motegi. I reckon if he is as off the pace as last round it will be just make the idea of finishing early and getting his op even easier. Pedrosa will be quick here (although where isn't he?). Its a real sh*tter that Honda didn't get themselves up to speed sooner cos Lorenzo would have had to really work for it this year against Dani.
