2012-06-04 00:00

MONTMELO (Spain) — Jorge Lorenzo tightened his grip on the MotoGP championship lead when the Spanish Yamaha rider came out on top in a battle with compatriot Dani Pedrosa to win the 2012 Catalunya GP yesterday.

Lorenzo snatched the lead on the Montmelo track with just under six laps left and pulled away from Honda’s Pedrosa to secure his third win in five races this season.

Italian Andrea Dovizioso was third for Yamaha, with Pedrosa’s Honda team-mate and reigning champion Casey Stoner of Australia fourth and Britain’s Cal Crutchlow, another Yamaha rider, fifth.

Lorenzo has 115 points after five of 18 races, with Stoner on 95 and Pedrosa on 85.
