Jorge Lorenzo insists he has put last Saturday's lap one Assen accident behind him and is approaching this weekend's Italian Grand Prix in a positive frame of mind.
The reigning world champion dropped to 28 points, over one race win, from Casey Stoner after being knocked down by a falling Marco Simoncelli after just a few turns of the Dutch TT.
Lorenzo limited the points damage as much as he could with a strong comeback ride to sixth, in a race won by Factory Yamaha team-mate Ben Spies, but he can't afford to keep shedding points to Stoner.
Spaniard Lorenzo has finished second at Mugello for the past two seasons.
"We are going to Mugello, no time to rest and think about what happened last Saturday," he said. "The team did a great job and I believe the bike now can be better, making a step ahead. We have to be positive after all!
"Mugello is a track I like so much, maybe one of the most beautiful around the world, my favourite with Phillip Island. This track is full of chicanes and this year there is new asphalt!
"I've never won in MotoGP, but we will try to be there and give a show to all our fans. Also I hope the weather changes after the previous races, summer has arrived."
"Mugello is a very smooth track which Jorge likes and it suits our bike," added team manager Wilco Zeelenberg. "We've been able to win there with Yamaha and they've changed the surface so it's very flat with lots of grip. Let's see if we can have two on the podium, that's our goal.”
Stoner has won four of the seven races this year, with Lorenzo, Spies and Dani Pedrosa taking one win each.
First free practice at Mugello takes place on Friday morning.
