The Yamaha rider was able to provide a much closer challenge to his rival at the Italy MotoGP, only for Marquez to sneak victory and extend his perfect start to the 2014 campaign.
A trip to Montmelo is next up for the riders, where Lorenzo has claimed victory there in three of the last four races, and he is determined to go as close as possible to replicating that this weekend.
“In Mugello I tried my best, I felt stronger and I think we did a really good job,” he told the official MotoGP website.
“We were really close to the victory and my physical condition improved a lot compared to the last races. The bike also worked well and I guess if we can do a step ahead either with the bike or my physical condition we will fight again for the victory.
“Now we are heading to Montmelo, one of my favourite tracks like Mugello and I would like at least to be on the podium.
“Last year we could find a good pace for the race and I remember we won in front of the two main rivals, achieving a great win.
“Hopefully this season we can fight once again; that would be so special considering Montmelo is like my home race.”
