With Valentino Rossi taking Yamaha's first MotoGP win of the season at Misano, team-mate Jorge Lorenzo would like nothing better than to claim Yamaha's first ever Aragon victory this weekend.

Honda riders have won the last three events at the Spanish circuit, following a Ducati victory for Casey Stoner at the inaugural 2010 event.

But Lorenzo finished just 1.356s behind Marc Marquez last season and is ready to cause an upset this weekend.

"Motorland is a great track but it's one of the few circuits on the calendar where I was never able to win," Lorenzo said. "Over the last few years the layout seemed to be more suitable for our rivals, but I guess this season we can be closer especially because we tested there a couple of days after Montmel? so we already have some references."

Lorenzo added: "You never know. Last year I won in Motegi, a Honda track, and it was a massive surprise. I don't see why we can't do the same thing this year at Aragon!"

Lorenzo qualified on pole last time at Misano, but was unable to match Rossi in the race, resulting in his fourth runner-up finish in a row.

"I'm still pursuing my first victory of this season and Misano again wasn't the place, but I'm not worried about it. Hopefully we can complete a good weekend at Aragon and let's see what happens!" he said.
