Rossi bumps Stoner, Lorenzo wins Moto GP

Sunday, April 3, 2011

Jorge Lorenzo won his second straight Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday after Casey Stoner crashed on the wet track after being bumped by seven-times world champion Valentino Rossi. Australia's pole-sitter - who won the season-opening Qatar GP last month for Honda - led with 20 laps to go.

But when Rossi attempted to pass Stoner on his Ducati, both riders crashed to the ground, with only Rossi continuing the race but finishing over a minute behind Lorenzo. Stoner was heard to have a stab at Rossi after the race.

"You had something with your shoulder did you?" Stoner said to the Italian, smiling. "Obviously your ambition outweighs your talent." Lorenzo was far more happier than Stoner.

"It was a hard race but I am happy with the win," Lorenzo said. "We had some luck, without the fall of Stoner we would not have won."

The defending MotoGP champion, riding for Yamaha, was 19.339 seconds faster than fellow Spaniard Dani Pedrosa, who recovered his starting second place after falling to ninth early on.

"At the beginning everyone passed me, but I thought everyone was going too fast and was able to come back," said Pedrosa, who will undergo surgery on his collarbone on Monday.

After Stoner's mishap, Marco Simoncelli took over the lead until he too crashed four laps later and had to retire. American Nicky Hayden finished third, 29.085 seconds off the pace, at the 4.4km Jerez Circuit.

"It was complicated, but I got a few breaks out there," Hayden said. After two races, Lorenzo leads the championship with 45 points, Pedrosa is second with 36, with Stoner is third with 25.

In the Moto2 category, Italy's Andrea Iannone was first with Thomas Luthi over seven seconds behind. Simone Corsi completed the podium, over 12 seconds behind.

In the 125cc class, Spanish rider Nicolas Terol won his second straight race ahead of Jonas Folger and Johann Zarco. The next race is the Portugal GP on May 1.
