If good things come to those that wait, Jorge Lorenzo is more than deserving of a Sachsenring MotoGP victory on Sunday.

Lorenzo may have won 58 races since his grand prix debut in 2002, but none of them have been in Germany.

But that doesn't mean the 2015 title contender won't be pushing as hard as ever this weekend.

"It is true that in my 12 years in the world championship I've never had a victory at this track. With Austin [and Argentina] it is the only one that I couldn't win at. It is never too late to win and for sure I'm going to try this time and in the future," he declared.

"It's important to start in a good way from first practice, have a good pace, feel great with the setting of the bike and not have any big problems in some sectors of the track like in Assen. This is my goal for tomorrow. Start in a good way and then try to improve little by little the bike."

Lorenzo saw a four-race win streak end last time in Assen, where he claimed third from eighth on the grid.

"Assen was a very good race for me because we were in a difficult situation, starting in eighth place. I managed to solve the situation and be third place after the first lap and then I tried to follow [Rossi and Marquez] but I couldn't. A difficult weekend, never really competitive so we hope that here is different."

One of Lorenzo's problems at Assen was that the tyre selection did not feature the special edge-grip treatment used at many circuits and he will have to adapt again this weekend.

"It is the way that it is. These are the tyres that we will race here and probably at Indianapolis," he said. "I think last year I made a good race. We finished in third place and we kept more or less the pace of the Honda even if we lost a lot of seconds at the beginning. I've won with these tyres, maybe not at this track but at Mugello, and I hope to be competitive in other tracks."

Lorenzo is currently ten points behind Yamaha team-mate and title leader Valentino Rossi, winner at Assen.
