Lorenzo sorry for ‘risky’ move

"I waited a little bit until the fuel was less full, then I could brake a bit later and find the extra two tenths a lap that were key to this victory.”

Lorenzo's first victory since round one in Qatar means he has moved to second in the standings, but a poor wet race at the previous Le Mans round means he is twelve points from fellow double 2013 winner Pedrosa.

“We finished seventh in Le Mans and that was not good for the championship,” said Lorenzo.

“Without that we could be close to Dani. Now we are twelve points behind. It is not too big but we have to keep going fast and finishing on the podium if we want to win the championship. We need to improve the bike at other tracks where we struggle more.”

Next up is the second Spanish round of the year, the Grand Prix of Catalunya.

“Riding in your home grand prix is always a big motivation for all the Spanish riders,” said Lorenzo. “Montmelo is also one of my favourite tracks. It is a good track for smooth riding and flowing change of directions. Let's see if we can improve our little problem in the hot conditions. We are fully motivated after this victory. I really pleased and calm.”

Pedrosa took victory at the first Spanish event, held at Jerez, when Lorenzo lost second place to rookie Marquez after a clash at the very final corner.
