In a season that has proven to be a major disappointment for the former champion thus far, Jorge Lorenzo heads to the Grand Prix of Italy hoping a return to Mugello will spark a revival in his fortunes.

With just a single podium finish to his name - and already 80 points off the championship lead -, Lorenzo comes to the sixth round of the season in Italy desperate to get his season back on track after another lacklustre outing at Le Mans.

Indeed, Mugello could mark a minor turnaround for Lorenzo should be able to call upon the same form that saw him win there for the last three seasons, the 2010 and 2012 world champion suggesting the layout suits his riding style.
