Yamaha Head to Misano MotoGP round  in a Confident Mood
Following a short but well-earned one-week break after an intense three consecutive race weekends, Yamaha Factory Racing now head to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the Grand Prix of San Marino on the 15th September.

Jorge Lorenzo arrives at one of his favourite circuits in confident mood after a stunning victory at Silverstone over Championship rival Marc Marquez.

Lorenzo's results at the Misano circuit have been consistently impressive, winning for the last two years and taking three consecutive second-place finishes prior to that. He also claims a 250cc win in 2007 meaning he has finished on the podium at Misano every year since 2007.

"I feel strong again like I was at MontmelÌ_ and Mugello before the crash." Lorenzo stated. "The performance at Silverstone was really good, the only weak point there was the top speed compared to our rivals, but at last we achieved a great victory against Marc.

"I thought it was pretty difficult to beat him when he overtook me but finally I could get the win and it was fantastic. Misano is a track I enjoy a lot and also the Yamaha is comfortable there.

"My next goal is to fight for the victory once more and think race by race, improving our pace step by step," the Spanish rider added.

Valentino Rossi returns to his home race looking forward to riding Misano again on a Yamaha. The nine-time world champion has two premier class MotoGP victories at Misano with Yamaha in 2008 and 2009 and two further podiums, finishing second last year and third in 2010.

"Misano is next and it is my home Grand Prix and an important weekend." Rossi explained. "I like the track, I always go fast there, especially with the Yamaha and last year also I was able to do a very good race.

"In the past I was always on the podium with Yamaha. We will arrive very strong and we will try to do our best. Rossi concluded.

Situated on the Adriatic coast close to the city of Rimini, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli was first constructed in 1972 and was a frequent host to the Italian Grand Prix in the 80s and 90s.

A leave of absence came to an end when the race returned in 2007, with Yamaha proving to be the most successful constructor since that year with four of the six race wins and an unbroken podium run.
