Reigning champion focussed on closing the gap to Casey Stoner at Laguna Seca
15 POINTS separate the top two positions after Jorge Lorenzo put his 'miracle' pass on Casey Stoner to take second position on the last lap in the German GP.
The Spaniard's aim at Laguna Seca is not only repeating a win like last year, but ensuring that he beats his championship rival Stoner to close the championship lead. An aim that he has accomplished in both his emphatic ride at Mugello and last weekend at the Sachsenring.
Riding in the retro red and white colourscheme on his M1 again, Lorenzo said: "We are very strong at the moment with a great result at both Mugello and Sachsenring, we will try to continue to reduce our gap to Casey. I have had great moments in Laguna; above all last year when I won, but also in 2009 when I got pole position even with a big crash and at the end got a podium."
The Corkscrew is the possibly the most famous corner on the calendar, Jorge continued: "Laguna is amazing; for the American style and atmosphere, but above all because of the corkscrew. I think maybe it is the best corner in the Championship, the place everybody wants to meet! I am looking forward to being back on my M1 there, riding to fight for the title!"
