The yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo has won the Catalunya Moto GP in Barcelona to cut Spanish compatriot Dani Pedrosa's lead in the championship to 7 points.

The reigning world champion, who won for the third time this season, moved from third on the grid to first by the first corner and was never overtaken.

Pedrosa meanwhile extended his run of podium finishes to five races as he held off a late charge from his Honda teammate Marc Marquez to finish second with the rookie back in third.
