MotoGP Aragon: Lorenzo vows to come out fighting

'This track never suits our bike perfectly but over the last years we were able to win several times so you never know, especially this season with the new tyres' - Jorge Lorenzo.
Movistar Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo has vowed to come out fighting on home soil in his quest to return to winning ways again in the MotoGP World Championship at Aragon.

Lorenzo's last victory was at Mugello in May and he has fallen 18 points behind team-mate Valentino Rossi as he holds onto place in the championship standings.

The reigning world champion - who has won the last two MotoGP races at Aragon - is hungry to challenge for the top step once more and although Aragon has not been a perfect match for the YZR-M1 in recent seasons, Lorenzo says the new Michelin tyres and electronics this year could make a significant difference.

“Despite the high expectations in Misano, we finally could come back to the podium after some bad races. In Misano we worked really well throughout the weekend but ultimately Dani [Pedrosa] and Vale were faster than us. At least we got another podium and we found the line regarding the setting with the bike,” said Lorenzo, reflecting on his third place in San Marino last time out.

“Now it's time to go to Aragón. This track never suits our bike perfectly but over the last years we were able to win several times so you never know, especially this season with the new tyres everything is challenging and tricky. I'm eager to fight on home soil and I will try to taste victory again.”

Aragon is the final European round of the championship before three flyaway races in Japan, Malaysia and Australia ahead of the season finale in Valencia in November.

Yeah, we will try and put in some sort of effort if, the track is dry, the tyres are spot on, I can start from pole and nobody overtakes me. Oh, and if somebody does overtake, please sound your horn and leave plenty of room. It's not a race you know. Lol.

Luvnit: Lorenzo has lost it if you ask me and he is all talk! He doesn't have any fight in him so it will be interesting to see just what sort of performance he gives this week and what excuse he can come up with and who he can blame when he doesn't win - again!
what excuse did he come up with last week? Or do you just talk out of your @ss week in, week out?
