Brilliant Lorenzo doubles up

When Jorge Lorenzo gets into the 'zone', he's just about unbeatable. And so it was again at Le Mans when he moved into the lead on the second corner and was thereafter in total command, cruising to an effortless victory over his Movistar Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi and Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso.

Lorenzo is now the first rider to win back-to-back races in 2015 — normally the domain of his countryman Marc Marquez — as he moved to second in the standings, 15pts behind Rossi and four ahead of Dovizioso.

The Monster Energy Grand Prix de France was host to another dominating Lorenzo victory while an intense battle for fourth burned.

Fortunately rain was nowhere to be seen in Le Mans, setting the stage for an exciting and eventful MotoGP™ race. The French GP comes after a post race test in Jerez and many riders arrived in France with new confidence, direction and parts. Bradley Smith was one such rider, running new front forks this weekend and leading FP2 on Friday.

Lorenzo brilliant, Marquez dogged, Rossi's 200th podium

Jorge Lorenzo's lacklustre form in the opening three rounds of the 2015 MotoGP title has been consigned to history after the Spaniard produced a superb performance at Jerez. After scything through practice and qualifying, the Yamaha factory rider led the 27-lapper from start to finish ahead of world champion Marc Marquez — with a new lap record at one of his favourite circuits the icing on the cake.
