Motorcycling: Lorenzo revels in title built on consistency

Jorge Lorenzo fittingly clinched his maiden Moto GP world title with a third-place finish in Malaysia on Sunday, another consistent drive in a rock-solid season, informs. The Spaniard sealed the championship with three races left in a campaign that has brought him seven victories and top-four finishes in all 15 races. “It’s an incredible feeling but one that is difficult to comprehend really,” the 23-year-old Yamaha rider told reporters. “When you imagine what it would be like to be world champion it never quite matches the feeling of actually achieving it.

Lorenzo said he felt a lucky man. “In my racing career I haven’t really suffered much bad luck, always had good things happen,” he said. “I’ve had good bikes and good people to give the best chance of winning. It is something I really appreciate.” Lorenzo’s consistency and injuries to his main rivals meant he only needed a top-10 finish in Malaysia and after qualifying on pole the Spaniard was content to allow team mate Valentino Rossi battle Honda’s Andrea Dovizioso for the race win. Italy’s Rossi emerged from the dogfight with his first victory since the opening round of the season in Qatar, a race Lorenzo said was a defining moment in his triumphant campaign. “I didn’t really get off to a great start this season, it was very tough in the beginning. I had a nasty injury (badly broken thumb) to my hand from a training accident in February,” Lorenzo said.
