Moto GP: Stoner seals title with Australia win
Monday 17 October 2011
Casey Stoner breathed a sigh of relief yesterday after surviving a drama-filled day to claim his second MotoGP championship with his fifth successive Australian Grand Prix victory.
With nearest rival Jorge Lorenzo ruled out of the race with a severely injured finger following a crash in practice, Stoner was a shoo-in to seal the title but had to survive the odd wobble as driving wind and rain sent riders scattering. "Phillip Island doesn't let you go home without a wet session," Stoner said.
