Jorge Lorenzo managed another victory and gained another 25 score points to the charts. With this Lorenzo is getting closer to his teammate from Movistar Yamaha, Valentino Rossi who is leading at the moment with 118 points. Lorenzo managed his third win in a row with the success in Italy.
Lorenzo: “I‘m very happy, because I didn’t expect to escape with such a big margin, but sometimes it happens that you feel great on the bike. Today the track was not so quick so everyone has been a bit slower than we expected. I was the only rider to ride multiple 1‘47s, so luckily for me I was gaining six or seven-tenths per lap, this was key to the win of the race. If someone would have told me before Jerez that I would win three races in a row I wouldn’t have believed it, but this is what happened.
