Lorenzo made his championship debut on his fifteenth birthday, on the second qualifying day for the 2002 125cc Spanish Grand Prix - having to miss Friday practice as he was not allowed to race. He has a lollipop every time when he is on the podium, in deference to his sponsor Chupa Chups. Lorenzo is again dominating the 250cc World Championship during 2007. His first six poles of the season have all lead to victories.
Jorge's victory at Misano 2007 was his 16th in the 250cc class, making him the most successful Spanish rider of all time in the 250cc GP class -- with one more victory than Dani Pedrosa and Sito Pons.
