For the third time in five rounds, Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo was victorious, his latest feat arriving Sunday at his home race in Catalunya, Spain.

Lorenzo started from second on the grid, and the second lap was involved in an intense battle for the lead with his compatriot Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda). Lorenzo and Pedrosa would exchange the lead a total of six times, but when the 2010 MotoGP Champ took the lead on lap 19 of 25, he was untouchable.

Lorenzo would finish the race by over five seconds ahead of Pedrosa. Taking the final podium position was Monster Tech 3 Yamaha’s Andrea Dovizioso.

Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha Factory Racing YZR-M1 MotoGP) says: “I’m really happy with this victory as it was a very tough weekend. We performed a lot better than yesterday as in qualifying it was very hot.

“The grip on the track after the rain this morning was also not so great. At the beginning of the race when I was following Ben and Dani it was very easy to make a mistake under braking and touch them so I waited calmly for my opportunity. When Ben made a mistake I moved up. I followed Dani and watched him, he slowed his pace and eventually made a mistake so I was able to pass him then give it full throttle. Thank you so much to Yamaha and my team for working hard to make a great bike for today’s victory.”
