2007 Gran Premio D’Italia Alice: Rossi takes sixth successive MotoGP win at Mugello!

New helmet, and sixth successive MotoGP win at Mugello. The Doctor is back!

Yes indeed, no. 46 is back on top. Belying fears of Stoner romping away with the win on his home ground, The Doctor simply ran away from the pack this time around. Rossi stamped his authority all over the Mugello circuit, winning by a comfortable margin over Repsol Honda man Dani Pedrosa, who took second. This was Rossi’s sixth successive MotoGP victory at Mugello.

Nicky Hayden finished in 10th place. His title defense seems to be well and truly over...

Pramac d’Antin Ducati got a wonderful surprise, with old-timer Alex Barros taking third place, while Casey Stoner finished in fourth place. With this victory, Rossi is now only 9 points behind Stoner (as opposed to 21 points before that start of the race) in the MotoGP world championship points standing. With the MotoGP circus going to the Catalunya circuit in Spain next weekend, the 2007 season seems to be heating up good and proper now…

Alex Barros took a well deserved third place, staying just ahead of Casey Stoner. So the oldies still have a thing or two to teach the youngsters... :-)
