|Will Lorenzo steam roll this weekend, too?|
Coming into the race, Lorenzo now 'leads' the championship despite being on equal points as team mate Valentino Rossi on account of the higher number of wins this season, while Marquez lags over 50 points behind. Sounds like he's out of the title race, right? Wrong. Well, not quite. That's just two DNFs for both Rossi and Lorenzo over the next six races, and Marquez will be right on their tails once more.
But before we delve into any (probably completely wrong) predictions about what we may see occurring over the Silverstone weekend, it'd be wise to rewind to Brno and Indianapolis...
Marc Marquez headed into the US GP (quite possibly the last at Indianapolis for a while...) with heaps of pressure on his young but vastly experienced shoulders, not least questioning whether he could retain his faultless record of straight wins in the US since racing in the premier class, but also to clinch the win in an attempt to claw back his bid for the 2015 championship victory.
