Lorenzo looks to kick start MotoGP season

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team rider Jorge Lorenzo says he is “quite confident” that he can revert his current situation in this weekend’s Argentinean Grand Prix at the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo circuit near Rio de Janeiro.

The 2010 and 2012 world champion crashed out of the 2014 season’s first race in Qatar before finishing 10th in the second round in Texas two weeks ago.

The early championship standings sees the Spaniard down in the unfamiliar territory of 16th place and he trails compatriot and title holder Marc Marquez of Repsol Honda by 44 points already. Sunday’s main race gets underway at midnight Cambodian time.
