Now fitter and stronger and with a new two-year Yamaha contract confirmed, Lorenzo is determined to return to his best form.
There have only been rare flashes of his brilliance this season, notably a dynamic battle with Marquez in the Italian GP at Mugello when he finished a close second, his best result so far.
Lorenzo last won at Indy in 2009, winning by nine seconds.
