Aragon MotoGP race winner Jorge Lorenzo says he will fight all the way to win the world title after cutting team-mate Valentino Rossi's championship lead in Spain to 14 points with four races remaining.

Lorenzo hit back after two weather-hit rounds at Silverstone and Misano dented his chances to put pressure on Rossi as the title battle enters its closing phase with three fly-away rounds in Japan, Australia and Malaysia in October before the final at Valencia in Spain in November.

The 28-year-old says his aim is to continue recovering points on Rossi at the next round at Motegi in Japan in two weeks' time and expects Marc Marquez to play a role in the championship outcome over the final races.

"The expectations of the people watching the championship has been amazing," Lorenzo said.

"Losing points and recovering again is making this championship more interesting and I have to keep trying to recover more points in the next races.

"I know it's not going to be easy because Marc will be very strong in Japan and Valentino always, as we seen today, never gives up on the race and is very strong," he added.

"It's not going to be easy but we have potential, especially last three [races] so we are going to try in all the practices and all the races and give the maximum."

Rossi was disappointed to lose out to Dani Pedrosa as the pair disputed second place, but the Italian is looking forward to the final rounds at circuits where he enjoys competing.

"The battle between me and Jorge is very tough and it's great because every race we play point won by point. Jorge rode fantastic, very close to perfection, so it will be hard but we are there, we are quite competitive," said Rossi.

"Now we go to another part of the world to race and it's always something different, something special, but I like all the race tracks and now we take a rest for one week and then we will see."

With Lorenzo quickest in the dry, and Rossi in the wet, weather - and the pace of the Repsol Hondas - is likely to play a crucial role in the title outcome.
