Jorge is continuing his podium sequence, even when he can’t win he always manages to finish the race in a positive way. Started from Pole Position gained on Saturday, he immediately took the lead trying to set a gap but Pedrosa was faster and more consistent than him. Dani in amazing shape first reached Jorge and then he overtook him taking the lead. Nothing serious, Lorenzo pays only 5 points and continues to maintain 33 over Daniel in the general standing which is always first with 4 races remaining.
Next race is on October 14 in Motegi.
JORGE LORENZO - X-lite X-802.
"I was thinking to try for the win at the beginning of the race and if that was not possible then second place was the best possible result for the Championship. Dani had a better pace in the end, I was stronger at the start then little by little I was a bit slower, the tyres were slipping a lot and I couldn’t follow him. I nearly crashed in one corner and decided then to stay in second place and wait for the end of the race."
