Lorenzo in sticky situation

Three-time MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo is clearly unhappy with his form and needs something to change in the Ducati team.

The Spaniard has just one podium after eight races this season and is sitting in eighth place in the riders' standings, 55 points behind Ducati teammate and championship leader Andrea Dovizioso. 

While Lorenzo still has the belief to win and he knows the team is trying it's best to get him faster, the poor results have lead to a difficult situation.  

"…I know I have a lot of capabilities, a lot of talent, and when I feel good on the bike I'm capable of great things," the 30-year-old told motorsport.com.

"Now I don’t feel good, I try to do my best in all conditions.

"I'm working to feel as good as possible on the bike, working with the engineers on the bike, to put it together with my riding and be more competitive.

"I don't feel great in this situation. I want to escape from this situation as soon as possible."

Lorenzo is coming off a 15th place finish at MotoGP Assen, where he was 21st fastest in qualifying, earning him the worst grid position of his career.
