2012 MotoGP Video

Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo had once again displayed his patience and championship-winning skills this past weekend at Catalunya MotoGP.

Lorenzo was involved in a race-long battle with fellow Spaniard Dani Pedrosa, but once the 2010 World Champion got pass on lap 19 of 25, he was untouchable.

Lorenzo would take his home race by over five seconds ahead of Pedrosa, with Monster Tech 3 Yamaha’s Andrea Dovizioso placing his YZR-M1 on the final podium position; it was Dovi’s best-ever finish on the satellite Yamaha.
