MotoGP Czech Republic: 'Beautiful' Brno lights Lorenzo's fire

'Last year we dominated the race and I hope to have good feelings there again this time round' - Jorge Lorenzo.
Jorge Lorenzo's rostrum return in Austria has given the reigning MotoGP world champion a shot in the arm as he bids to emulate his dominant 2015 victory at Brno in the Czech Republic this weekend.

Lorenzo, second in the championship reckoning and 43 points behind Honda's Marc Marquez, is a huge fan of the circuit, which the Spaniard says is the perfect match for his factory Movistar Yamaha YZR-M1.

“We achieved a great result in Austria after a difficult period for me, so I'm pretty happy to come back with a podium finish. I'm happy to ride again this week at Brno in a back-to-back race,” Lorenzo said.

“That race track is beautiful and it suits the YZR-M1 perfectly. I like the Brno circuit a lot because it has plenty of high-speed corners and I have good memories there. Last year we dominated the race and I hope to have good feelings there again this time round.

“We need to stay in the fight again and try to recover some more points for the championship as we did in Spielberg.”

Lorenzo, who will join Andrea Dovizioso at Ducati in 2017, has won twice in the premier class at Brno in 2010 and again last season.

Lorenzo would have to be feeling much better after last race, compared to the previous two horror race weekends. However, no-one can take anything for granted this year, it's been full of twists to the plot. I'm hoping to see another healthy performance from the red bikes, but I don't mind if one of the usual front-runners puts an exemplary weekend together. Good luck to Lorenzo, in fairness, he is due for some.
