Repsol Honda’s Jorge Lorenzo will return to racing this weekend at Silverstone’s 12th round of the 2019 MotoGP World Championship in Great Britain.

Lorenzo suffered a frightening fall during practice at the Dutch grand prix, fracturing his T6 and T8 vertebrae and ultimately forcing him to sit on the sidelines for four rounds.

“It is very good to be back with the Repsol Honda team, it has been a long time since Assen,” Lorenzo explained. “I would have liked to have been back sooner, but the nature of the injury meant I had to take my time.

“While away from the track, I have been working hard to be as ready as possible for Silverstone but I know it will take some time to get back up to speed. I am pleased and ready to be back with the team so we can keep improving and get the results we know we can achieve.”

The multi-time world champion has endured a troubling maiden campaign with the Honda squad, struggling to come to terms with the RC213V while also battling a number of injuries.
