The defending champion seems incredibly calm and with a very cool mind, as he knows that all the pressure lies on Repsol Honda and Marquez.

However, the Mallorcan is not laid back, as both he and his team are aiming for a victory at Valencia, despite the fact that the biggest role in deciding who wins the 2013 title is played by the rookie's position when he flies past the last checkered flag of the year.

“I feel cool. I don’t have any pressure. I don’t have anything to lose, second place in the championship is done, so all I can try to do is win the race," Lorenzo says, and indeed his situation seems an almost trouble-free one.

Lorenzo needs no scheming and all he must do is just ride another race, hoping for victory, as this is the best he can do, anyway. So as important and decisive the 2013 Valencia round may be, it's still an usual race for the Cobra.

On the other hand, Marquez has to make sure he does not make any rookie mistakes, as they will be extremely costly this weekend. He may have set the fastest ever lap at Valencia with his 1m30s803 today, but there's more to come. This is how the 2013 MotoGP World Championship title will be decided.
