Three-time Mugello winner Jorge Lorenzo is hoping that the Tuscan track can bring him some fortune as he attempts to make up ground after the horror start to the season.
The two-time MotoGP World Champion has endured a horrific start to the season by his standards, and finds himself 80 points behind current championship leader Marc Marquez, with just one podium from Argentina to his name.
But now the Spaniard heads to Mugello hoping to replicate the results from his last three visits to the famous track. Lorenzo has won on his previous three visits, but knows this time will be even hard than usual.
“Well, first of all I would like to forget what happened at Le Mans. There I couldn’t feel good on the bike and therefore we need to think about the future. I will never give up and continue working really hard to get ready when our moment comes,” said Lorenzo.
“Now we are going to visit some special tracks for me and I think we can change some things to stay in front. We need to try to fight for our first victory of the season. That would be great for all of us, the team and I. Mugello is a suitable scenario for me where I’ve made some good memories in the past few years.
“It’s a special track and the layout is fantastic for my style of riding. Hopefully we can find our way in Tuscany!”
