MotoGP 2015 Jerez race results
Valentino Rossi claims his 200th World Championship podium
MOVISTAR Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo dominated the fourth MotoGP round from start to finish as Rossi claims his 200th podium.
Lorenzo dominated throughout the weekend, and proved, once again, that he’s not out of the running yet by taking the chequered flag 5.576s ahead of Marc Marquez.
Repsol Honda’s Marquez managed to hold of Rossi despite his broken finger by two seconds. The Spaniard’s pit board stated Rossi was closing the gap but, unlike Argentina, Marquez was able to respond to ensure the Italian remained in third.
Finishing third, Rossi took his 200th World Championship podium in Spain.
Briton Cal Crutchlow secured a lonely 4th place after battling with Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Pol Espargaro earlier on in the race. Espargaro finished 3.8s behind the CWM LCR Honda rider as Ducati’s Andrea Iannone fought with Pol’s older brother Aleix to take sixth. The Suzuki Ecstar rider was left to take seventh.
Bradley Smith finished in eighth, whilst Andrea Dovizioso finished ninth after riding through the field due to a couple of mistakes during the opening laps.
Pramac Racing’s Yonny Hernandez completed the top ten with Hector Barbera finishing as the top Open class rider in 14th.
Aprilia Racing Team Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista finished in 15th and claimed the final Championship point.
