GP Week : Issue 114
The happiest man in Esttoril was Pedrosa. Stoner too was happy just to finish after a back spasm mid-race powered past on the straight and stayed ahead to the finish. Crutchlow was a couple of seconds adrift after a final attempt at the chicane “nearly had us both down”. Nicky Hayden (Marlboro Ducati) was ninth, dropped by this group, but finally relieved of persistent pressure from Ben Spies (Yamaha) when his fellow-American crashed after 12 laps. Hayden had a back-shifting problem that became evident on the sighting lap, and said that he’d contemplated changing bikes and starting from pit lane. De Puniet (Pramac Ducati) was five seconds away in tenth; then Toni Elias (LCR Honda) won an almost race-long dice with Loris Capirossi (Pramac Ducati). Returned injury victim Alvaro Bautista (Rizla Suzuki) was almost half a minute behind, after being heavily delayed by Abraham’s crash. Lorenzo’s title lead over Pedrosa shrunk to four points, 65 to 61. Stoner has 41, with Rossi (31) moving to fourth ahead of Hayden and Dovizioso (both 30). MOTOGP estoril >> 25
