Lorenzo wins on wet track amidst chaotic condition

Lorenzo wins on wet track amidst chaotic condition

Snapshot: Jorge Lorenzo from the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP with a huge difference of 10sec.

How often do we see seasoned riders going down one by one creating opportunities for less likely riders to surge past and take the podium. It was all wet affair at the Aragon, Spain GP, which saw riders making mistakes by not changing from dry run setup  to the wet run setup. The opportunity was seized by Jorge Lorenzo to get the much needed win as he changed the bike 4 laps ahead of the finish.

The Aragon GP was the 800th premier class race and was conquered by Jorge Lorenzo from the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP with a huge difference of 10sec ahead of Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing). Cal Crutchlow from the Ducati Team finished third, completing the podium after the riders were forced to change to wet set-up before it started raining heavily after a dry start.

The race earlier saw a series of crashes as Valentino Rossi from Movistar Yamaha MotoGP and Andrea Iannone from Pramac racing go down soon after the race started in the dry conditions. But in no time it started raining and caused a chaos out there, as Andrea Davizioso (Ducati Team) crashed before he could switch to his wet bike and was taken to the medical facility for a suspected hip trauma.

Stefan Bradl from the LCR Honda MotoGP finished 4th followed by Bradley Smith from the Monster Yamaha Tech3, finishing at the 5th position, ahead of his team mate Paul Espargaro in 6th position. The top ten was completed by Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), Hiroshi Aoyama (Drive M7 Aspar), Nicky Hayden (Drive M7 Aspar) and Scott Redding (GO&FUN Honda Gresini).

The rider table now sees Marc Marquez leading the table with 292 points, a staggering 75 points ahead of his team mate Dani Pedrosa with 217 points. Valentiono Rossi is in 3rd position with 214 points and his team mate Lorenzo with 202 points at 4th position followed by Dovizioso with 142 points at 5th position.
