Lorenzo striving for home GP victory

Jorge Lorenzo hopes to follow in the footsteps of Dani Pedrosa by achieving a second consecutive Grand Prix victory as MotoGP™ heads to Barcelona this weekend.

Thanks to his second win of 2013 last time out in Italy, the Yamaha Factory Racing rider and reigning world champion has jumped up to second position in the championship and moved to within 12 points of Repsol Honda Team’s Pedrosa.
"I’m quite satisfied after our great result at Mugello that completed an almost perfect weekend," Lorenzo says on Tuesday.
"Winning again was very positive for me and for the team and we now go to Montmelo and my home Grand Prix. Some parts of the track are quite suitable for us but the doubt is always if the track conditions and the temperature can benefit us.
"I am very optimistic for the race and we will keep on working on the bike in the same way that we did in Italy. Compared with Mugello, Montmelo is a little bit slower, but at least there are no first gear corners and hopefully that will help us a lot. This is a good track for us and we have to profit from it and try to repeat the victory.
"It could be great for the championship. As far as I’m concerned, I will push 100% to achieve it."
Lorenzo has triumphed twice at the Circuit de Catalunya over the past three years, having won his home event in his title-winning seasons of 2010 and 2012.

Moto3: Zulfahmi Khairuddin - Q&A

A Red Bull KTM Ajo generated interview with Malaysian Moto3 star Zulfahmi Khairuddin...

Q:
Do you like the travel involved in Grand Prix racing? Do you get a chance to familiarise yourself with the places you go to?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"The truth is that during the season we don't have much time to get away. At most you have a day to see the city where a GP is held sometimes, but that's not the norm. You get used to spending all day at the circuit. It is a pity, because I really like to visit new countries, try their typical food and meet people from around the world."

Q:
You spent a year in Europe in 2010. What was that experience like and why did you choose to go back to Malaysia?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"The experience of 2010, living in Italy, was very good and important for me. It was my first year in Europe and I didn't know many people, nor was I familiar with the food - very important! - or the weather. It was a little difficult, especially during the first three months, because I was not used to everything around me.

“I especially struggled with the cold and the food. After the first few months I got used to it and finally I felt good and learned a lot from the people around me. 

“For the past two years I have lived in Malaysia. It's better for me to live there because I like to go home, to see my family and my friends. Moreover, the weather in Malaysia is always good. As is normal, I guess, there is nowhere else where I feel so comfortable."

Q:
And if you had to spend time away from Malaysia, where would you like to go?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"In Barcelona, which is a city that I like a lot. Many of my team members live there and I love it."

Q:
Many of your team members are Spanish and a big part of your preseason is spent in Spain. What do you like about the country?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"The beach, the city [Barcelona], the people... This country has many good circuits and racing is very popular here."

Q:
Is it true that you can sleep very easily on things like plane journeys?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"It's true; I have the ability to sleep anytime, anywhere. I need only five minutes to fall asleep! Last year, noticing this, the team gave me a cushion!"

Q:
More and more Malaysians are becoming MotoGP fans every year. Do you think we will see more Malaysian riders in the World Championship in the future?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"I hope so, but it is difficult to find riders who can make the leap up, because there is so much talent at World Championship level. Nevertheless, I think that the Sepang Circuit and the people involved there are doing a very good job. In my country there are some very talented riders."

Q:
Last year you took your first podium at Sepang. What do you remember about that?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"It was a Grand Prix that I will never forget: My first podium in Moto3! I felt bad about not being able to win in front of all the fans, but the experience helped and next time I will shut the door tighter on the last corner."

Q:
Where do you see yourself in five years' time?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"I don't know; for me to be in the World Championship is already a dream come true. Few riders know what they will be doing in five years' time. I would like to be able to one day ride in MotoGP. It is very difficult but I will work hard for it."

Q:
Final question: If you weren't a rider, what would you have liked to have been?

Zulfahmi Khairuddin:
"Something to do with bikes, as I love this world. So I would have liked to be a mechanic or engineer."

Spaniards chase the English into Barcelona

Britain’s Scott Redding has won the last pair of Moto2™ races and carries a healthy championship lead into Round 6 at Barcelona. Behind him, a pack of charging Spaniards – as well as Finland’s Mika Kallio – are now hot on the heels of the Marc VDS Racing Team rider ahead of what is, for many of them, a true home race.
Curiously, although Redding may hold the smallest amount of points of any of the current leaders across the three categories of the World Championship (with 101 to Dani Pedrosa’s 103 in MotoGP™ or Maverick ViƱales 106 in Moto3™), he convincingly holds the greatest advantage thanks to a 43-point cushion. With ‘only’ 25 on offer for a race win, this demonstrates the pressure on the shoulders of rivals.
Redding’s strong lead has come about as a combination of his steadiness coupled with the inconsistency of his closest opponents. Whereas he has achieved two wins, two second places and one fifth, Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2’s Nico Terol and Redding’s teammate Mika Kallio have enjoyed only two rostrums apiece, whereas Tuenti HP 40 pairing Esteve Rabat and Pol Espargaro have both won races but also been outside the top ten on two occasions each. Technomag carXpert’s Dominique Aegerter, who is sixth in the standings and the final rider to have notched up half a century of points, is yet to finish inside the top three but has collected a trio of fourth place finishes.
A key part of the upcoming weekend has in fact already happened, as Moto2™ enjoyed a single day of post-race testing after the last Grand Prix at Mugello. This was especially key for the likes of pre-season title favourite Espargaro, who after the last race openly admitted that he and his squad were in need of bike improvements in order to get back on par with Redding. Qualifying will bring the first real answers.
Two wildcard entrants are set to join the action this weekend, as Petronas Raceline Malaysia’s Hafizh Syahrin and TSR Motorsport’s Dani Rivas take to the track. The sun is expected to shine, although Barcelona weather has been changeable of late…
