MotoGP Americas: Lorenzo 'eager to recover some points'

'Let's see how things are going during the weekend but I'm eager to do a good race and try to recover some points' - Jorge Lorenzo.
MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo has a quick chance to put his misfortune in Argentina behind him as the championship moves swiftly on to Austin, Texas this weekend.

Lorenzo came off his Movistar Yamaha at the Termas de Rio Honda track and left without any points after beginning his title defence in style with a victory in the Qatar night race.

Although a strong circuit traditionally for Honda, Lorenzo is determined to claw back some ground on new championship leader Marc Marquez this weekend.

“After a very disappointing race in Argentina I look forward to racing in Austin. I thought we could get some good points in Termas de Rio Hondo but unfortunately we struggled all weekend and finally in the race as well,” said the Mallorcan.

“The CoTA circuit is not one my favourite tracks nor for Yamaha, so we need to try to understand as soon as possible the circuit with the new electronics and tyres.

“Let's see how things are going during the weekend but I'm eager to do a good race and try to recover some points before facing the first race in Europe."

Luvnit Part of being a champ is realising and accepting you make mistakes at times and moving on, not dwelling on them like Crutchlow or Pol Espargaro does... He didn't admit he 'couldn't be bothered to race' at all. He said he was uncomfortable and knew he wouldn't be winning due to that. Agreed with Rexxy, once COTA is out of the way we're fully into Lorenzo's prime territory.

Yearby23: Avatar Agreed, for me Marquez is still the best bike handler and all round racer. Fast in all sessions, qualifying, rarely qualifies lower than 3rd...ever. Fast in the race and aside from last year super consistent. He is also proving he can be just as fast on a bike that isn't quite as good as the Yamaha or Ducati.
Consisitent who ? marquez ? :p .. he'll prove it by binning it in COTA ... just you wait .. And also this is a post about Jorge not Marqez.
Said he was consistent apart from last season when the Honda wasn't exactly brilliant. I think he's title favourite anyway with Lorenzo. Rossi isn't over last year yet and I think it will implode again.
