Reflecting on defeat to Marquez, Lorenzo told MCN: “I lost the second place and it was like this. Race Direction decided not to do anything and that’s it. We didn’t crash and that's important and I lost four points and the lead in the world championship. But it is a good lesson to learn again because after Montmelo in 2009 I thought I had learnt the lesson. This time it was different because in Montmelo I knew that Valentino was there but in Jerez I thought he (Marquez) was further back but he was closer than I expected. I didn’t make a defensive line. This was my mistake and this is a lesson to learn in the future which is not be to be confident of the distance of the rider behind.” When asked by MCN if he felt Race Direction had been too lenient with Marquez and that his move warranted a penalty, Lorenzo added: “I don’t think that it matters so much what I think because it is not me taking the decision. Let’s see what happens in the future and maybe this will improve me as a rider
