Lorenzo leads Yamaha one-two in FranceArchive
LE MANS: Spain’s Jorge Lorenzo celebrated his second successive MotoGP win after beating team mate and championship leader Valentino Rossi in a Yamaha one-two at Sunday’s French Grand Prix.
Italian Andrea Dovizioso was third for Ducati, with world champion Marc Marquez finishing only fourth for Honda after starting on pole position but losing out in the battle off the line.
The result left Rossi on 102 points while Lorenzo, who won the previous race in Spain and is the first rider to triumph twice in a row this year, has 87 after five rounds. Dovizioso is on 83 and Marquez 69.
Marquez’s team mate and fellow-Spaniard Dani Pedrosa failed to score on his comeback, having missing the last three races due to arm surgery, after crashing on the second lap. He rejoined in last place and finished 16th.
