Indy MotoGP: Jorge Lorenzo looking to end losing streak

1 of 1

Jorge Lorenzo is determined to end his losing streak when the MotoGP world championship makes its second trip across the Atlantic to Indianapolis this weekend.

The 22-year-old Spaniard hasn’t won since the French GP in Le Mans and his world title hopes have suffered a hammering recently when he crashed out of the lead at Donington Park and Brno.

The Spaniard, who is expected to decide his future in Indianapolis this week having been made a multi-million pound offer by Ducati, has fallen 50-points adrift of Fiat Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi.

The double world 250 champion said: "Indy is very special for me because it’s the first track where I got a podium in wet conditions, in my very first year in MotoGP! Last year was strange, maybe we should have finished earlier because Hurricane Ike was pretty strong; this time I hope everything will be a little bit easier.

"I am feeling confident because I’ve felt good in the last races, riding very fast since the beginning of the weekend, despite what’s happened on Sunday. I am not thinking about the championship any more but I would like to win a race again after more than three months, especially here in Indy when it’s the centenary of the track."
