‘I’m ready for Sachsenring and am going into this race weekend with a happy mindset. I managed to recover a bit of an advantage that I had lost in past races. Having a ten point lead after eight races is not bad, I’m very happy. Now we go to Germany and it will be very important to reconfirm how competitive we are. We understand that our competitors are working hard to return at the front and in Assen we succeeded in staying ahead. Marquez will probably be with us in the next races and we must be very careful with him. At Sachsenring my first goal will be to work as we have done in the Netherlands, starting from the first free practice. Jorge I’m sure will come back strong, making it even more important to work well this weekend. After Sachsenring there will be a break and it will be important to rest a bit before taking on the second part of the season.’

JORGE LORENZO

‘In theory Sachsenring is a worse track for us than Assen. It never suited the Yamaha perfectly in the past so it‘s a very challenging circuit. I have never won in Germany, so I‘m keen to get on the top step at least once. You never know, maybe it could happen this season because it‘s been a bit strange. I love Assen but this year something changed and I didn‘t find the perfect set up to be more competitive. During the race I struggled more than I expected but we understood how to solve it for the future. Sachsenring is a good racetrack with a nice atmosphere and a lot of fans. In the past I was close to winning a couple of times but I never did it. This year our bike‘s performance is good so I think we can achieve higher goals than in the recent years.’
