Lorenzo looks to build on impeccable Estoril record

Having won in 2008 and 2009, Jorge Lorenzo heads to the 2010 edition of the Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril looking to make it a hat-trick for FIAT Yamaha.
With the 2010 MotoGP World Championship trophy firmly in his grasp, Jorge Lorenzo is turning his attentions to ending his title-winning season on a high with victories at Estoril and Valencia.

Two and a half years on from winning his first-ever MotoGP race at the Portuguese venue, Lorenzo is bidding to extend a strong record there that also saw him score a dominant race win in 2009.

Describing himself as 'still on a high' following his championship success, Lorenzo heads to the Portuguse Grand Prix bidding to close a fine season in an appropriate way.

"We now have the last two races in a row, and they are two very special races. The first one is Estoril, where I've had some of my best moments in MotoGP in the last two seasons. I had never won there before in 125 or 250, but since 2008 I have had two victories. It's the only one place where I've won twice in this category!

“I like the Estoril track and I always seem to feel so good there. Also it always seems a bit like another Spanish GP. Many people from home are coming and I am looking forward to feeling their support, because it's the first time I've ridden so close to home since becoming World Champion. I am still on a high and I would try to win again, like last year when the astronaut arrived!"

Based on the last few trips to Estoril, Lorenzo will blow em away, Stoner will be second. Rossi will be third just because Dani isn't fit. This has always been one of Vale's worst tracks. Nicky might push for a podium maybe?
