Defending champ Marc Marquez (Honda) continued his dominance of the MotoGP series by winning his fourth straight GP at Jerez. The last rider to win the four opening rounds was Mick Doohan in 1992. A strong showing by Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi saw the aging nine-time World champion slot into second on the podium, finishing just in front of third place Dani Pedrosa (Honda).
Former champ Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) was unable to maintain the pace of the front runners (blaming tire wear), and finished in a lonely fourth position with large gaps on both sides of him.
Marquez continues to build his points lead in the championship over Pedrosa (now 28 points). For additional details, results and points visit the official MotoGP site.
