MotoGP Silverstone: Lorenzo ‘happy and confident’ for British GP win bid

Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo is hoping his thrilling win at Silverstone last season will inspire him to similar success in 2014.
Jorge Lorenzo is quietly confident he can target the repeat of his win in the British Grand Prix having almost turned a difficult MotoGP World Championship season around in recent races.

Fighting rides in the last three races have seen the Movistar Yamaha rider standing on the podium, lifting him to fourth in the overall MotoGP standings, and giving him the optimism he can challenge for victory at Silverstone this weekend.

Indeed, Lorenzo enjoyed one of his most impressive wins at Silverstone last season after prevailing in a thrilling battle with Marc Marquez to triumph by just 0.081secs and is hopeful for more of the same inspiration in 2014.

“After three consecutive podiums I feel good. Last weekend in Brno we found some good solutions that surely will give us at least a tenth in the next races. I feel quite good and we are going up throughout the championship. We must congratulate the team for their work in the last races and especially during the last one at Brno.

“We're happy and confident for the next race. Silverstone is quite different to Brno. It's a long varied circuit with fast corners and strong braking points and last year we got the win there. It looks good but we need to be careful and work hard during the whole weekend and then wait also for the weather, which is always tricky there.”
