Jorge Lorenzo Guerrero (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxoɾxe loˈɾenθo ɣeˈreɾo]) is a Spanish retired professional motorcycle racer, and a three-time MotoGP World Champion, in 2010, 2012 and 2015 as well as a two-time 250cc World Champion in 2006 and 2007 making him a 5 time World Champion.After winning the 2006 and 2007 250 cc World Championships, Lorenzo moved to MotoGP in 2008 with the factory Yamaha team. In his first season he won rookie of the year honours after finishing 4th place in the championship including a win at Portugal. The 9 seasons he spent with Yamaha from 2008-2016 proved to be very successful for Lorenzo as he won the championship on 3 occasions in 2010, 2012 and 2015 and finished as championship runner-up in 2009, 2011 and 2013. His win tally of 8 in the 2013 MotoGP season remains the most by any rider in the premier class in a single season not to win the title as he finished just 4 points behind Marc Marquez in the final standings. Lorenzo moved to the Ducati factory team in 2017. He struggled at Ducati in his first season getting only 3 podiums and finished 7th in the championship in 2017 while his teammate and former 250cc rival Andrea Dovizioso fought for the championship until the final round in Valencia. In the subsequent season in 2018 Lorenzo regained form and got 3 victories in Mugello, Catalunya and Austria and a further 2nd place in Brno. A move to Repsol Honda in 2019 proved to be ill fated and Lorenzo retired at the end of the season.With 47 premier class wins Lorenzo is 5th in the all time list of premier class race winners.
