The second half of the 2010 MotoGP season gets underway on Sunday at the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic. Fiat Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo is currently 72 points clear at the top of the championship, a commanding lead, having racked up six race wins and three runners-up places so far.

Defending world champion Valentino Rossi's first half was hampered by injuries, and although not yet back to full fitness...Rossi says he is slowly rounding into form.

Jorge Lorenzo said, "I ride so well there. I have won three times here and never in MotoGP so we will try to get the first victory here but as always our main objective is to win the world title so lets see what happens."

Defending World Champion Valentino Rissi said, "Now more slowly than at the beginning for sure but constantly so for sure I'm not at the maximum but also with the pain I improve a lot my power so I think and I expect to have a bit less problem to ride the bike at the maximum."
