Joining Pedrosa on the 2017 Jerez MotoGP podium were Marquez and the bigger surprise of the podium—Ducati Team’s Jorge Lorenzo, who claimed his first podium on the Ducati Desmosedici since joining the team for 2017.

Speaking after the race, Pedrosa said “ It was extremely hard race to be calm. I wanted to go faster but the track conditions weren’t there. The feeling at every corner felt like crashing. I wasn’t riding very comfortable, so I had to be very focused and control my pace.”

When the Spanish Grand Prix began, Pedrosa, using a medium rear and hard front Michelin tires, took the holeshot, followed by Marquez, Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Andrea Iannone, LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Maverick Vinales, Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Johann Zarco and Valentino Rossi. As for Lorenzo, the Ducati Team GP17 pilot slotted into eighth.
