Lorenzo vanquishes all in MotoGP™

 Lorenzo vanquishes all in MotoGP™

The Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider carved out a substantial gap to claim a decisive victory.

After starting from 3rd position on the grid, the Mallorcan quickly dropped the pack and enjoyed a solitary race to the finish line.

Lorenzo shares the podium with team mate Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda Team) started in pole but dropped back as the race got underway. Whatever the issue initially, Marquez typically overcame it and went on to fight an epic battle with Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) to claim 4th place, relegating the Italian to 5th.

Marquez’s team mate Dani Pedrosa crashed in the early stages of the race, but remounted. Even though the Spanish rider had little chance of claiming points, it was vital for him to rejoin the race and test how his injured arm holds up over full race distance.

Brit Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) finished in 6th, having better fortune than his compatriots. Cal Crutchlow (CWM-LCR Honda) crashed out of the race on turn 6, losing the front on the difficult downhill curve. Scott Redding (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) also crashed out of the race after completing just 3 laps of the Le Mans circuit.

Pol Espargaró (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), Yonny Hernández (Pramac Racing), Maverick Viñales (Team Suzuki Ecstar MotoGP) and Danilo Petrucci (Pramac Racing) complete the top ten.
