ROSSI LEADS YAMAHA 1-2 IN QATAR AFTER STONER CRASHES

Quote:
Valentino Rossi made the perfect start to his world championship title defence with a consummate victory in the opening round of the 2010 season at Qatar, as Ducati rival Casey Stoner crashed out of the lead early on.

Rossi's Yamaha team-mate Jorge Lorenzo finished second after a dramatic late surge, while Andrea Dovizioso beat a revitalised Nicky Hayden to third place by 0.011s.

The grand prix always looked like it was heading in Stoner's direction. The Australian dominated much of practice and took pole, and was leading when he lost the front end of his GP10.

Stoner dropped to third at the start behind a fast-starting Dani Pedrosa and Rossi. But he forced his way past Rossi at Turn 4 on lap two, then passed Pedrosa into Turn 1 a lap later.

He was beginning to establish a comfortable lead when inexplicably, his bike was in the gravel, and after just six laps, his race was over.

By this time Rossi had got past Pedrosa, whose first lap form deserted him as he dropped down the order, and found himself gifted a lead he perhaps hadn't expected to come so easily.

His race wasn't wrapped up yet though as Pedrosa's team-mate Andrea Dovisioso provided a mid-race challenge to the world champion.

The extraordinary straightline speed of the Honda even allowed the tall Italian to take the lead on the straight on lap 17, but Rossi got straight back by under braking for Turn 1. That was the warning Rossi needed and he infused some extra pace around the back of the circuit to break his pursuer's spirit.

In the wheel tracks of the Honda was a revitalised Hayden, who rode superbly and looked on for a podium on the Ducati, until Lorenzo's penultimate lap charge, which saw the Spaniard rocket past both the American and a surprised Dovizioso in two separate, ruthless manouvres.

Hayden gave it his everything to get back in to a podium position on the last lap, in unquestionably his most competitive race since 2008, and actually got past Dovi around the back of the track.

But as the pair came on to the straight, Hayden simply had no answer to the speed of the Honda and was forced to accept fourth.

Ben Spies took a competitive fifth for Tech 3 Yamaha, not too far away from the battle for third, while Randy de Puniet finished a respectable sixth.

Pedrosa eventually faded to seventh ahead of Colin Edwards, who overtook Loris Capirossi midway through the Italian's 300th race. Rookie Hiroshi Aoyama finished tenth.

Marco Simoncelli was 11th for Gresini after a last lap tangle with Suzuki newboy Alvaro Bautista who crashed as a result. Hector Barbera was the immediate beneficiary, 12th for Aspar on the team's MotoGP debut, while Marco Melandri was the last finisher.

But The Doctor rocks :cool:

When it comes to Rossi one can't say but 'The Man has skills'.

I've seen him so many times come from behind and make a huge gap to others that he is a miracle-maker to me :O

Shame I missed the race yesterday :(

But Well done Doctor and Jorge too ;)

yeah, it will probably be rossi again. but lorenzo challenge should be stronger than last year ans now he has more experience. Stoner was on my mind until he made that error. Dark Horse could be Hayden this year. He was ok at Qatar but if he can up his game just a little bit he will be the contender as well.

Incredible drive by Lorenzo in Jerez.

I must admit I´ve become a fan of MotoGP for the last 1 and a half years. Amazing motorsport.

My dream is to see LOrenzo on the Ducati. UNtil then my fav. rider is Casey Stoner. I love that Ducati Desmosedici, the Ferrari on 2 wheels.

And Stoner´s wife...omg one of the hottest women I´ve ever seen.

Stoner is in deep trouble at the moment. He'll need a few wins if he's to have any chance of getting the title. Lorenzo and Rossi look to be the main championship contenders at the moment.
