The 2013 MotoGP Championship resumed last weekend with round five of 18 at the picturesque Mugello circuit in Italy’s Tuscany region.

Heading into Mugello, Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa had the points lead following two consecutive victories at Le Mans and Jerez. And following a second-place finish at Mugello, the Spaniard retained the points lead.

Though Pedrosa qualified on the pole and was quickest during the final two free practice sessions, he couldn’t catch his fellow countryman Jorge Lorenzo during Mugello MotoGP.

The Yamaha Factory Racing YZR-M1 pilot took the lead midway through the first corner at the 3.259-mile circuit, and was untouchable. Pedrosa and his teammate Marc Marquez tried throughout the first half of the race, but were unsuccessful.

With three laps remaining, Marquez was in second ahead of Pedrosa, but crashed out, handing second to Pedrosa. Taking the final podium position at Mugello MotoGP was Monster Tech 3 Yamaha’s Cal Crutchlow.
