Lorenzo vs Rossi

This weekend MotoGP heads to Sepang for the Malaysian Grand Prix. It is the penultimate round of the 2015 season and will once again see the two factory Yamaha riders of Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi attempt to improve their title aspirations.

Currently, Lorenzo is eleven points behind Rossi in the standings with two races remaining. This means that were Rossi to win and Lorenzo finished sixth or lower, Rossi would claim the title in Malaysia.

The absolute best scenario Lorenzo can hope for is if he wins and Rossi does not finish which would see Lorenzo go into the final round of the season with a fourteen point gap.
