World Champion Jorge Lorenzo says he ‘pushed to the limits’ in Sunday’s 23 lap Gran Premio Iveco de Aragon race, but it was not enough to prevent another Marc Marquez victory.

Rookie sensation Marc Marquez took control of the MotoGP world championship with victory in the Aragon Grand Prix but at a high cost to team harmony within the Repsol Honda squad.

Marquez Wins Aragon GP, Pedrosa Crashes Hard

Marc Marquez extended his points lead by winning the Aragon MotoGP on Sunday, but his victory came only after he played a part in the crash of Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa.

Marquez grazed the back of Pedrosa’s bike when he was trying to pass him with 18 laps to go, causing Pedrosa to lose control and slide down the track with sparks flying.

“I touched him a little with the front of my bike, and they tell me I may have broken a cable and that’s why he fell,” said Marquez. “It was very unlucky. That doesn’t usually happen.”

World champion Jorge Lorenzo has forced his rivals to adopt a high-risk race strategy in a bid to end his winning streak in Sunday’s Aragon Grand Prix.

Both Valentino Rossi and rookie title contender Marc Marquez know they must contain Lorenzo within two laps of the start or risk getting beaten.

Lorenzo has nothing to lose and knows that without a string of race wins he cannot shut down the 34 point advantage held by Marquez.
