Lorenzo takes victory at Silverstone

Behind Hayden were Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda), Valentino Rossi (Ducati) and Hector Barbera (Pramac). Rossi was the only manufacturer rider to chose the harder option rear and struggled badly early in the race.

Crutchlow's team-mate Andrea Dovizioso was in the thick of a seven-rider lead group early on, but fell from the podium battle at the halfway mark. The Italian rejoined but finished a lap down, in 19th and last.

Battle of the CRTs was won by Aleix Espargaro after a last-lap showdown with Aspar team-mate Randy de Puniet for eleventh place.

James Ellison, the second of the British riders on the grid, limped away from a highside in morning warm-up and rode his PBM Aprilia to 14th in the race, his second points' score of the year.

Speed Master's Mattia Pasini was the only rider not to finish.

Cardion AB Ducati's Karel Abraham was unfit to ride this weekend due to finger fractures in his left hand sustained in testing at Aragon.

Silverstone was the first event where the new specification Bridgestone slick front tyre became the only construction available.

Round seven of the championship will take place at Assen at the end of the month.

What a stupid thing to say pcxmac. What a heroic ride by Crutchlow, I take my hat of to him, incredible ride to 6th, and now back in 4th in the standings. Dont take anything away from Jorge, rode a brilliant race, nice battle with Casey too. Well done Alvaro, 4th place is pretty good!!
