Spain’s Jorge Lorenzo extended his lead in the overall standings yesterday as he won his second successive race, the Catalunya MotoGP.
The Yamaha-riding 2010 world champion came home clear of compatriot Dani Pedrosa on a Honda while Andrea Dovizioso, on a Yamaha, edged world champion Casey Stoner for third.
Lorenzo, 25, won his third race of the season and his 20th MotoGP and holds a 20- point lead over Stoner heading into the British race.
After planting his signature flag in the gravel in front of his ecstatic fans, Lorenzo told Spanish television it was ‘fantastic’ to win in front of home support.“It was a balanced race,” said the flamboyant 25-year-old.
