Jorge Lorenzo says he is determined to put the events at Sepang behind him and place everything on the line for the MotoGP World title showdown.
The Movistar Yamaha rider trails his team-mate Valentino Rossi by seven points in the championship but currently has as an upper hand heading to Valencia after the Italian was given three penalty points for his clash with saw Marc Marquez which saw him crash out of the Malaysian GP.
The points, coupled with his penalty point from Misano, mean Rossi will start the Valencian MotoGP from the back of the grid, However, it is still to be confirmed after the Italian lodged an appeal against his penalty to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Lorenzo also stepped in by launching his own appeal to participate in Rossi's case, but was rejected by the courts and now the Spaniard wants to solely focus on events on track.
“We have arrived in Valencia after a very busy and exciting season,” Lorenzo said. “In Malaysia we got a good result and we recovered more points in the championship, but I will skip past all that happened there and stay focused in Cheste, where there is a lot at stake.”
Lorenzo has endured mixed fortunes at the Valencia track, taking two MotoGP race wins along with two retirements since 2010 (missed 2011 due to injury), and is looking to give his all for a third MotoGP World Championship.
“I hope the fans will support us at home and that we will have a good race,” he added. “This year I won the previous three races that were held in Spain and to do well in Valencia would be amazing.
“I've always noticed the warmth of the fans and I'm sure in Valencia we will enjoy a great show. I will give everything on the track to get this championship title.”
