Lorenzo is "No.1"

1 of 2

MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo has unveiled his racing logo for the 2011 season: a number one made of the initials J and L.

He said: "I have been lucky with my design because the No 1 works really well with my JL initials. It was a difficult choice to change my number but I have earned the right for this unique opportunity to wear it. I won't forget my No 99 this season, it will be there somewhere on my leathers because No 99 is in my heart."

Last season Lorenzo earned a record breaking 383 championship points on his way to the title. He will be the first Yamaha rider to sport the number 1 since 1993 when Wayne Rainey defended his crown for the third consecutive year.
