A Lorenzo corner? Catalunya - but not the last turn!

"The last one, for sure not!" - Jorge Lorenzo.
Following the naming of turn three at Phillip Island in honour of local star Casey Stoner, MotoGP title leader Jorge Lorenzo was asked which corner he would like for a similar tribute when he retires.

The Factory Yamaha star replied that ideally the circuit would be Catalunya, near where he now lives.

And the corner?

"The last one, for sure not!" smiled Lorenzo, nodding towards Valentino Rossi. "I don't have great memories!"

Lorenzo famously lost the 2009 Catalan Grand Prix when he was overtaken at the final turn of the race by team-mate Rossi (pictured).

Countryman and title rival Dani Pedrosa said somewhere at a race track in Spain, maybe Jerez, with Rossi selecting Casanova-Savelli at Mugello in Italy.
