Dovizioso leads 250cc by solitary point

Andrea Dovizioso maintains his lead at the top of the 250cc classification, but nearest rival Jorge Lorenzo lies just a solitary point behind the Humangest Racing rider after a fantastic run of form. With three victories from the last four races and a dominant display at Donington Park, where Dovizioso crashed and could only salvage sixth place, Lorenzo is well and truly back on the title trail.

"I still lead the Championship, although by a small margin, When I crashed I tried to get back on the pace immediately, but I'd suffered a few problems with bike damage," commented Dovizioso.

Lorenzo has been pleased by his return to form after a recent blip. "I am really happy, everything is functioning nearly to perfection. Despite not going as fast as I had liked, when I pushed hard Dovizioso made a mistake. I don't like to see a rival crash, but this time fortune has been on my side," said the Spaniard.
