Lorenzo looking for rostrum return at Motegi

http://motogp-f1-races.blogspot.comThe Championship leader is in a resolute mood ahead of the Grand Prix of Japan and outlined his aims in the pre-event press conference on Thursday.

Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo heads to Motegi for this weekend's Grand Prix of Japan determined to get back on the rostrum, after a fourth place last time out at Aragón ended the Mallorcan's run of consecutive podium finishes that started with second place in the season opener at Qatar.

Lorenzo still holds a 56-point advantage over Dani Pedrosa at the top of the Championship standings heading into this weekend's race, which was postponed back in April due to the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. The Fiat Yamaha rider took one of his four wins last season at Motegi and is keen to do well in Yamaha's home race, as he looks to defend his position at the top of the standings.

"I'm not comfortable, but my position in the Championship is good," declared Lorenzo during Thursday’s press conference at Motegi. "We're not in the best shape technically; we have a little disadvantage in terms of power, but the latest evolution engine should improve things. I am thinking about the Championship, so I must keep going fast but I must also be prudent, calculating and not doing any crazy things. This weekend I hope to be able to fight for the podium, and maybe even for the victory."
