In-front of an animated French crowd and under sunny skies we were treated to an afternoon of exciting racing, drama and intrigue.
Jorge Lorenzo took his second victory in succession in France as the Spaniard led from the opening lap, with Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi struggling to keep up with the former champion.
Taking the lead on the exit of the Dunlop chicane, Lorenzo was able to keep hold of first position despite pressure from both Andrea Dovizioso and team-mate Rossi. Reigning champion Marquez had a tough race due to the warmer weather conditions, meaning the set up of his RC213V wasn't able to cope with the heat putting the Spaniard in a battle for fourth position.
