MotoGP: Dani Pedrosa reigns as it pours in Malaysia


A Dani Pedrosa wet-weather masterclass gave him victory in a rain-hit Malaysian Grand Prix yesterday to keep the heat on the MotoGP championship leader, Jorge Lorenzo, with a fifth victory in six races.

The Spanish Honda rider was clear after 13 of a scheduled 20 laps at the Sepang International Circuit when the race was red-flagged because of the poor conditions. Lorenzo was second, with world champion Casey Stoner third.
