Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi filled the second and third steps of the podium at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix on the new revised layout.
Rossi made a blistering start from fifth on the grid to lead the opening laps, battling with Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team).
A battle soon emerged between Marquez, Rossi and Lorenzo with frequent passes. The current MotoGP World Champion was eventually able to get the better of the Yamaha pair, going on to win. Lorenzo attempted to chase down his fellowSpaniard, but soon had to settle for second as a two second gap emerged.
Rossi was a comfortable third, as Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) recovered from eighth on the grid to finish fourth, but never getting within four seconds of the experienced Italian.
