Jorge Lorenzo 99 Wallpaper

At Mugello, Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo was unstoppable. The Spaniard not only won his second consecutive race in a row at Mugello, he also added to his tally of five wins in nine rounds.

Lorenzo started from second on the grid behind his fellow countryman Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda). Pedrosa got to turn one of the Italian circuit first, but soon Lorenzo was in the lead.

Throughout the race Lorenzo kept pulling away, eventually finishing the race 5.223 seconds ahead of Pedrosa. Taking the final podium position was Monster Tech 3 Yamaha’s Andrea Dovizioso.

Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha Factory Racing YZR-M1 MotoGP) says: “From the beginning I felt great on this track, the asphalt was completely different to Sachsenring which was a nightmare for us. From the first practice here I felt very strong, very good on the bike and a fast constant pace. It was a pity that we had the problem in the last lap of qualifying but the important thing was the race.

“Today I was hammering a lot to open a gap at the beginning of the race as I thought my competitors would have problems on cold tires. Unfortunately I couldn’t do it immediately. Only hammering every lap and going faster and faster from 1’48.1 then into the 47s could I open a bit to Pedrosa then little by little it got better and I could start to breathe. It’s been a great win for the whole team’s efforts and for Yamaha who have given me such a good bike.”

After nine of 18 rounds, Lorenzo now has 185 points, 19 ahead of Pedrosa.
