Jorge Lorenzo Re-Signs with Yamaha MotoGP

Factory Yamaha MotoGP rider, Jorge Lorenzo, 25, has re-signed with the Tuning Fork brand and will continue to race its YZR-M1 prototype in the ’13 and ’14 MotoGP World Championship. The announcement puts an end to rumor that the Spaniard would jump to the Repsol Honda team as a replacement for reigning champ, Casey Stoner after he retires at the end of this season.

"I am extremely happy to have signed with Yamaha for two more years," said Lorenzo, who currently leads this season’s championship. "They've made great efforts to retain me in the factory team so I want to thank all those involved at Yamaha for this. I've been treated like part of the Yamaha family since 2008 and I love working with them. It has always been my first option to stay here and so I'm happy that this important negotiation has finished with such a positive outcome. Now I can focus on the championship and I'm looking forward to paying back Yamaha's trust in me starting at Silverstone this weekend. I look forward to winning many more championships together. My dream to finish my career with Yamaha is now closer to becoming a reality!"

Lin Jarvis - Yamaha Motor Racing Managing Director:
“This is excellent news for Yamaha and for the Yamaha Factory Racing Team,” commented Lin Jarvis. Jorge has been with us since 2008 and achieved superb results in the first four years, the highlight being his World Championship victory in 2010. He’s currently on top form having won three of the first five GP races and finishing second in the other two. Jorge’s contract extension allows both him and Yamaha to concentrate 100% on this year’s Championship challenge without any distractions and also to make future plans together to further strengthen the winning partnership.”

Lorenzo takes dominant win at Silverstone


Sunday, 17 June 2012
At the Hertz British Grand Prix at Silverstone it was Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo who recorded a hard fought victory in an exciting MotoGP™ race ahead of Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa.

The predicted rain stayed away for the MotoGP™ grid as Yamaha’s Ben Spies took the holeshot ahead of Repsol Honda Team’s Stoner and San Carlo Honda Gresini’s pole-sitter Álvaro Bautista. Spies made a tremendous start leading the early stages from Stoner, Bautista and Ducati Team’s Nicky Hayden. Lorenzo lost a place in the first bends, and was soon leading a separated group for fifth place.
With 17 laps remaining Lorenzo started to find his rhythm as he looked to close the gap to the front four, followed by Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Andrea Dovizioso and Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa. A lap later Hayden tried to dart past Bautista into third, but ran too wide, allowing the Spaniard back in. Soon after Stoner made his move past Spies, as the Texan made a mistake, also going too hot into a turn.
More overtaking was to follow, as Lorenzo took advantage of a gap left by Hayden to hunt down Bautista. Just seconds after, Hayden left yet another gap for Dovizioso to push the American even further back. With Stoner having pulled out a small gap at the front, Lorenzo did not want his rival to get way and forced his way past Bautista, relegating the San Carlo rider into fourth.
The tussle was not to stop, as Lorenzo stormed past his teammate into second, with Spies being overtakes by Bautista as well a corner later. In the same bend Pedrosa snuck past Dovizioso, who kept on the Spaniard’s rear wheel to retake him just a few corners later. The Italian continued his charge as he fought past early leader Spies, with Pedrosa following suit, relegating the Texan into sixth.
With 11 laps left Lorenzo was closing in on the rear wheel of Stoner, starting a thrilling battle for top spot. On the same lap Dovizioso crashed out of his positions, while his teammate Cal Crutchlow fought past LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl into seventh.
Heading into lap nine, Lorenzo took Stoner on the final turn, yet the Australian fought straight back in the next turn, as the pair kept the crowd on their toes with some thrilling moves. As one Repsol Honda was overtaken, the other in the form of Pedrosa went up into third.
A lap further on, the duo of Pedrosa and Bautista started to slowly close the gap on Stoner, who looked to be slowing. With six laps left it turned into a three-way battle for second place, as Lorenzo was opening a gap at the front. On the same lap, Ducati’s Valentino Rossi, who was the only rider to pick the hard rear tyre, took Pramac Racing Team’s Héctor Barberá for ninth. Speed Masters Mattia Pasini retired from the race with a mechanical issue.
Lorenzo suffered a slight scare with four laps left as he was almost thrown from his bike, but he managed to save it and retain the lead, albeit with a reduced gap to the pursuing Stoner. In the latter stages there were thrilling battles further back as Crutchlow battled past Hayden into sixth, and Power Electronics Aspar pair Aleix Espargaró and Randy de Puniet were fairing to fairing until the finish line.
In the end it was Lorenzo who held his nerve to cross the finish line first to take the top step of the podium and extend his championship lead, ahead of Stoner and Pedrosa who complete the rostrum. Fourth went to Álvaro Bautista, ahead of Ben Spies, and Cal Crutchlow, who put in a brave ride with his injury. The top ten were completed Hayden, Bradl, Rossi and Barberá. Top CRT spot once again went to Espargaró ahead of his teammate in 11th, while Dovizioso remounted after his crash to finish 19th.

The championship is Lorenzo's to lose now, the Yamaha is definitely more than a match for the Honda, its only Stoner and Pedrosa's talent keeping the Honda up towards the front!

Honestly I think it's fair to say Lorenzo will win the title. A bit unfortunate.

Boys, we're only a third of the way into the year, plenty of time for a championship challenge to emerge.

For sure, everything could change, but it's definitely looking to favour Jorge at the moment.

Once Stoner leaves, so will 50% of the Australian viewing public.

MotoGP is turning into a joke, instead of using technology and decreasing the size of the engines for the same performance, the moron's increased the capacity, then fitted production based engines to prototype frames (CRT) only to have bikes that are slower than the current WSBK bikes at the same tracks??

How the frig is anything going to be relevant to the man in the streets road bike now that the 'Premiere' class is using engines older than what's currently available to us?

Stoner was right, MotoGP isn't what its supposed to be, the F1 of motorcycling, its turning into the WRC, and that's an absolute debacle waiting to turn its toes up!!!!

Once Stoner leaves I probably won't watch it anymore. In fact I've already sort of stopped in the past few events.

MotoGP got boring when they went to the 800 and has not improved under the new rules. Long live WSBK!
