Lorenzo: Assen is my favourite track

Having lost the lead of the MotoGP World Championship at Silverstone, Jorge Lorenzo is hoping he can get back on terms with Casey Stoner at Assen.
Jorge Lorenzo is hoping his good record at Assen, as well as his strong preference for the circuit, will pay dividends in his quest to keep a tight rein on new MotoGP World Championship leader Casey Stoner.

The Spaniard surrendered the lead of the standings when he crashed out of the British Grand Prix, Lorenzo slipping 18 points adrift of his Repsol Honda rider.

However, the reigning champion, who will be riding a special red and white liveried M1 in a nod to Yamaha's 50th anniversary of grand prix racing, believes Assen will be a good opportunity to get back on terms with his rival.

"Assen is my favourite track where I've won in all categories and also last season. This year it is very special coming here because we celebrate the 50th Anniversary!

“Now we are in second position in the championship, we come here looking to put pressure on the leader. I need to do the same job as I've done before with maximum effort. The team is focused and I wish to come back to finish at least on the podium."
