The pressure was on Casey Stoner to produce in this past weekend’s race as Rossi was leading the championship; pressure or not, Stoner went down after a few laps from the leading position of the race. Rossi went on to win easily from an 11s cushion over the rest of the field. The rest of the field had an exciting race with the Suzuki’s and Pramac Ducati of Toni Elias duking it out. Tony Elias’ 2nd place is a great achievement considering that Stoner has been the only performing Ducati in the field this year.
