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.

Lorenzo made a brilliant start to the race from second on the grid and it looked in the early stages of the race as if he could repeat his Silverstone and Misano victories, as he cranked up the pressure.

Marquez Friendly Fire Raises Honda Tensions

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.

And only time will tell if a post-race apology by Marquez to his bruised and battered teammate Dani Pedrosa will be enough to heal a widening rift.

Pedrosa was unforgiving in his assessment that Marquez’s aggressive, high-risk late braking style is over the limit.

Valentino Rossi was back on the podium for the fifth time in 2013 and the 146th time in his premier class career at the Gran Premio Iveco de Aragon on Sunday.

The nine-time World Champion took advantage of the highside crash of Dani Pedrosa in front of him during the race to slot in behind Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo and was happy to return to the rostrum.

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.”
