We wanted Rossi to win, but it was not to be. Ducati rider Casey Stoner stormed to an impressive victory at the Turkish MotoGP in Istanbul today, while Rossi finished a distant tenth, partly due to tyre problems with his Yamaha. Gresini Honda rider, Toni Elias came in second, while another of our favourite riders, Ducati rider Loris Capirossi took third spot. Says Capirossi, "I feel like the father of these two guys, because I'm really old! I tried to catch Casey, but he's really fast so I didn't want to risk too much..."
