Spain’s double world champion Jorge Lorenzo drew first blood by taking the MotoGP floodlit season-opener from pole in Qatar on Sunday as Italian great Valentino Rossi stormed to second. The sensational podium tussle featured Rossi fighting back from an early mistake that dropped him to seventh, ultimately beating the Hondas of Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa to the runner-up spot. Lorenzo held his pole advantage into the first corner and immediately disappeared up the road. An opening-lap lead of 0.6 seconds soon became two seconds and 5.9s by the end.
