The newest member of the Repsol Honda Team, Jorge Lorenzo enters race week with a title to defend. Holding the strongest historical combined index out of all the riders on the Mugello Circuit, Lorenzo has proven his ability to crank out flawless performances on this difficult circuit. With 5 podiums in the last 7 years, Jorge Lorenzo has taken 1st place with not 1, but 2 manufacturers.
It is no secret that the Spanish rider has had a rough start to the season as he adjusts to the new team and bike. With that said, we have seen a gradual improvement each race as he finds harmony with the Honda. We hope that the Mugello Circuit will offer Lorenzo a familiarity and certain level of confidence that allows him to push harder, qualify faster and ultimately let the Lorenzo we saw 12 months ago shine through.
