In classic Lorenzo style the Spaniard took the lead on the opening lap of the race and remained unchallenged for the duration of the race as his competitors crashed and battled it out for the other two positions on the podium.
Now with a gap of just 14 points to Rossi with four round remaining, the championship fight is still well and truly on for Lorenzo.
Getting the holeshot into the opening corner from second position on the grid, Lorenzo was determined to make a clear getaway from his competitors. As reigning world champion Marquez chased him, he crashed out of the race from second position on only the second lap, meaning he has failed to finish in the last two Spanish rounds this season.
