MotoGP leader Valentino Rossi wary of Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez threat

Valentino Rossi says that he is wary of rivals Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez as he tries to maintain his lead with five races left to go in the MotoGP championship.

MotoGP leader Valentino Rossi has no plans to relax as he is wary of the threat posed by rivals Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez.

With five races left to go, Yamaha's Rossi has a 23-point lead ahead of teammate Lorenzo, while defending champion Marquez sits 63 points adrift.

"It's true that the Championship is a lot more important that winning the race - it's the main target," Fox Sports quotes Rossi as saying.

"There are still five races left and unfortunately Lorenzo has the ability to win at every single one and Marquez is also always strong, so there are still a lot of points left to fight for."

The next race in the calendar is in Aragon on September 27.
