17 May 2015 15:03
Spain's Jorge Lorenzo celebrated his second successive MotoGP win after leading team-mate and championship leader Valentino Rossi in a Yamaha one-two at Sunday's French Grand Prix at Le Mans.

Ireland's Eugene Laverty finished 14th and in doing so claimed his first points of the season, and indeed first ever MotoGP points. Italian Andrea Dovizioso was third for Ducati, with world champion Marc Marquez only fourth for Honda after starting on pole position. The result left Rossi 15 points clear of Lorenzo, who won the previous race in Spain and is the first rider to win twice in a row this year, after five rounds. The Italian has 102 points, to Lorenzo's 87 with Dovizioso on 83 and Marquez losing ground on 69. Marquez's team-mate and fellow-Spaniard Dani Pedrosa failed to score on his comeback, having missing the last three races due to arm surgery, after crashing out on the second lap. He rejoined the field in last place and finished 16th.
