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.Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, MotoGP
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.

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.”Aragon, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, MotoGP, Valentino Rossi
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.

The young Spaniard used a late flyer (1’47.804) to claim his third successive pole, crushing Casey Stoner’s previous lap record set in 2011 (1’49.046).
Lorenzo tried to take the fight back to Marquez in the closing moments of Q2 but with his Yamaha M1 lacking high-end speed down the long straight in the final sector, he was unable to do so and will start second.Alvaro Bautista, Aragon, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, MotoGP, Stefan Bradl, Valentino Rossi
