Valentino Rossi led from start to finish with a masterly ride to win the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez Sunday ahead of world championship rivals Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez. Rossi remains third in the MotoGP standings despite his first win in 10 races, but the Italian moves to within 24 points of championship leader Marquez and seven points of Yamaha teammate Lorenzo.Victory in Spain was especially sweet for Rossi after he lost out on the title last year in the final race of the season in Valencia amid claims Marquez had deliberately obstructed Rossi in the final races of the season to aid his compatriot Lorenzo's title challenge. The seven-time world champion has now won nine races across all categories in Jerez, but this was his first success since 2009 .
