Spain's Jorge Lorenzo extended his lead in the overall standings on Sunday as he won his second successive race, the Catalunya MotoGP.

The Yamaha-riding 2010 world champion came home clear of compatriot Dani Pedrosa on a Honda while Andrea Dovizioso, on a Yamaha, edged world champion Casey Stoner for third.

Lorenzo, 25, was winning his third race of the season and 20th MotoGP, having taken the opener in Qatar and then added the French race last time.
