Malaysian MotoGP: Casey Stoner takes tenth win of the season at Sepang

Of course he won. What do you think...

Marco Melandri took second place, Dani Pedrosa was third and de Puniet took fourth spot

The Malaysian MotoGP at the sweltering hot and humid Sepang circuit was probably one of the most boring races of the season. It was like watching a procession of fast, very fast, motorcycles riding in strict formation. 2007 MotoGP world champ, Stoner led the race from start to finish, taking his tenth win of the season! He was followed by Honda Gresini rider, Marco Melandri (who’s joining Stoner at Ducati in 2008…) in second place, and Dani Pedrosa in third.

Kawasaki rider Randy de Puniet, who’ll move to the LCR Honda team next year, put in a strong performance, taking fourth place, while Valentino Rossi, who ultimately finished in fifth spot, was unable to make any impression on him. In sixth was Toni Elias, seventh and eighth places were taken by the Suzuki duo of Chris Vermeulen and John Hopkins, ex-world champ Nicky Hayden was down in ninth place, and Colin Edwards completed the top ten.

At the end of the day, this was a supremely dull race. We just hope the last MotoGP of the season at Valencia, on the 4th of November, is more interesting to watch. Hey, at least let’s wrap up the season in style!

I literally fell asleep towards the end while watching it. But the 250 race wasn't too bad.

The world champion was decided today, Jorge Lorenzo, he's got quite a showmanship. I hope some day he'll race in motoGP.

Meanwhile, those paddock girls... they aren't from Malaysia GP right? I heard the M'sian paddock girls wore more covered clothing?

MotoGP has gone back to the 1990s, when Doohan dominated the scene for 5 - 6 years. Of course, you couldn't blame him for winning or for other riders not being able to keep up with him. Same goes for Stoner. At least the pit chicks are still hot! ;-D

OK it wasn't the most exciting race but at least it wasn't about Rossi... I don't understand how can anyone complain this has been a boring season. You've got a rookie riding for an underdog team coming out of nowhere to dominate the season - it doesn't get any more exciting than that.
I thought racing was boring in the previous seasons when it was all Rossi, Rossi, Rossi... I've nothing against the man, I'm sure he's a great rider. But enough already!
