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!
