The Honda riders celebrate their 1-2 finish
Today in the Grand Prix of Spain in front of 111,259 spectators, Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa completed a perfect race to take his first victory of the 2013 season. Teammate Marc Marquez enjoyed a fantastic battle with Jorge Lorenzo, passing him in the final corner to take a thrilling second place.

After tracing Lorenzo, who led from pole, in the early laps, Dani made his move on lap six and never looked back, opening up a 2.4 second lead by the end of the race. With this victory, Dani continues his incredible run here in Jerez, finishing on the podium in all eight starts in the MotoGP class. Jerez continues to be the most successful circuit for Spanish riders for premier-class victories, with a total of nine; Alberto Puig in 1995, Alex Criville in 1997, ‘98, ‘99, Sete Gibernau in 2004, Jorge Lorenzo in 2010 & 2011 and Dani in 2008 and 2013.
