With Italian media having speculated that Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez had a clandestine meeting in Andorra before the fly away races to determine how the MotoGP world championship would be decided the Spaniard has been forced to release a statement to deny any such agreement.

“From the staff of team Jorge Lorenzo, we officially deny categorically everything that has been published in the last hours of a possible meeting or Jorge Lorenzo pact with Marc Marquez – a ridiculous and unfounded information published yesterday [Wednesday] by La Repubblica and subsequently chimed other Italian media,” read the statement. 

"Not wanting to feed more this unpleasant situation for the pilot, we just want to express unease about such rumours, which have not been verified before going public. We reiterate once again that all this information is absolutely false. 

"On the other hand, we also want to deny that Jorge Lorenzo was in the office of Race Direction after the Malaysian Grand Prix as some media commented, as Jorge himself also explained at a press conference.”

This weekend's Valencia Grand Prix is the final round of the championship and Lorenzo will start the race with a seven point deficit to Rossi. The Italian will however start from the back of the grid.
