Jorge Lorenzo is expecting no easy challenge as MotoGP continues in Japan this weekend. This time, the Yamaha rider could have two Repsol Hondas to deal with as Casey Stoner returns from injury to rejoin title contender Dani Pedrosa.
Let off the hook at Misano when Pedrosa was taken out of the race, Lorenzo finished second to his compatriot last time out in Aragón. With four races to go and a 33-point margin between the leaders, the Mallorcan expects a tough time.
“We start the Asiatic tour leading the championship and in a good shape after the Aragón race,” says Lorenzo, who now resides in Barcelona.
“For sure it’s going to be difficult, because our competitors at this point are very strong, but we have to play our cards in the best possible way. Motegi is a track that I like; I won here in 2009 and I think we can fight for the win again this weekend.”
The aforementioned Stoner, now out of contention for the championship, will be pushing for victories before he retires at the end of 2012.
