Brazilian GP has been theatre of an amazing show of an enormous Valentino Rossi.
The World Champion completed an untroubled GP in sunny Brazil to take his sixth win of the year and continue his path toward fifth World title.
After his latest success Rossi has pulled out another five points over Gibernau in the Championship and leads the way by 51.
Manuel Poggiali experienced a perfect GP this week-end when he took his fourth chequered flag of the season.
After a close cat-and-mouse contest with his rival Tony Elias, the rider from San Marino pushed under pressure his Spanish rival, that ran into one of the last corner too fast and lost the front end barely 10 seconds away from a guaranteed podium.
Dainese rider Poggiali now has a margin of 22 points over Rolfo, 28 over De Puniet and stands 39 ahead of Elias.
In 125, Dainese Spanish rider Daniel Pedrosa took fourth position in a race won by compatriot Jorge Lorenzo, with Perugini finishing seventh, but revealed that a mechanical problem in the second half of the race prevented him from challenging for victory.
Despite his disappointment, this fourth position push him over nearest challenger Stefano Perugini to 42 in World Championship standing.
