    (CNN)Movistar Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo dominated Sunday's Aragon MotoGP to claim his 60th career victory, and claw back potentially invaluable points on championship leader Valentino Rossi.

    The Spaniard led from the first corner after a lightning start, delivering a faultlessly disciplined performance in front of 67,000 fans.
      His task was made easier after reigning champion Marc Marquez -- who had earlier obliterated his own lap record to claim pole position -- lost the front of his Repsol Honda on the second lap, crashing unceremoniously out.
