Lorenzo looks to end Márquez's victory run
13 August 2014 – Jorge Lorenzo is hopeful of putting an end to Marc Márquez's victory streak at the Czech Grand Prix.
Repsol Honda's Márquez has won every round of the 2014 MotoGP season so far, becoming the first rider since five-time champion Mick Doohan during the 1997 season to notch up 10 successive victories in the top class.
But Lorenzo and Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi, buoyed by fighting for victory in the previous Indianapolis Grand Prix, head to Brno in a confident frame of mind, having traditionally enjoyed their visits to the venue.
"I think Brno could be good for us like in Mugello or Montmeló," Lorenzo explained ahead of the race.
"It will be difficult because Marc has been pretty constant at all the tracks. We have improved a lot from Barcelona and we have found some little things that have enabled us to be more constant and competitive.
"Physically I feel in a good shape and I can keep a good pace during the race. Maybe in Brno with this bike we can fight for the win but to be more competitive in all the tracks we need more efforts to get some more tenths."
Rossi added: "I really like Brno. In the past I did good races although in the last couple of years I've not had a great performance there. We will have to repeat what we did in Indianapolis; concentrate, study corner by corner in every practice and do the maximum to fight with Marc and Jorge. It would be great to return to the podium."
