Lorenzo moved to within 14 points of Rossi with four races to go. Two-time defending MotoGP champion Marquez, who abandoned for the fifth time in 14 races, dropped 79 points behind Rossi in third place. The 22-year-old Marquez was trying to become the youngest rider to reach 50 grand prix wins.

Lorenzo won his 31st MotoGP race and 60th overall in all categories, a feat only four other riders have attained.

“It was a good start, it was important to get ahead of Marc and lead the first laps,” the 28-year-old Lorenzo said. “It was very hard to stay in front, so when I saw that Marc had crashed, I started breathing a little easier. He was doing all he could to stay close, and I think he ended forcing too much.”

Our new weapons beneath the skins which formed

His three boats stove around him, and oars and men both whirling in the eddies; one captain, seizing the line-knife from his broken prow, had dashed at the whale, as an Arkansas duellist at his foe, blindly seeking with a six inch blade to reach the fathom-deep life of the whale. That captain was Ahab. And then it was, that suddenly sweeping his sickle-shaped lower jaw beneath him, Moby Dick had reaped away Ahab’s leg, as a mower a blade of grass in the field. No turbaned Turk, no hired Venetian or Malay, could have smote him with more seeming malice. Small reason was there to doubt, then, that ever since that almost fatal encounter, Ahab had cherished a wild vindictiveness against the whale, all the more fell for that in his frantic morbidness he at last came to identify with him, not only all his bodily woes, but all his intellectual and spiritual exasperations.
