Michelin saw its range of wet tyres used to great effect today as Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) raced to victory during a rain affected Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix at Sepang in Malaysia and in the process become the ninth MotoGP™ race winner this season.
Starting from pole position, Dovizioso saw that advantage quickly disappear as Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) led the pack into the first corner. By the time the riders had completed the first lap of the rain-soaked 5,543m Sepang International Circuit, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) had taken the lead, with rest of the field close behind. In the treacherous conditions - which were caused by a torrential downpour as the bikes lined up on the grid and resulted in a delayed start and a reduction of the race distance to 19-laps - most riders chose the medium MICHELIN Power Rain tyres front and rear. As the competitors found the optimum grip through the standing water in the early laps, the lead changed hands many times with - considering the conditions - some impressive overtaking manoeuvres. Dovizioso was sitting in third place and on lap-12 overtook team-mate Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) to take second. The Italian then chased down Rossi and seized his opportunity on lap-15 to take the lead and push clear at the front. Dovizioso never looked back and pulled away to take victory by over three-seconds, with Rossi following him home in the runner-up position. Dovizioso’s second MotoGP victory of his career also makes him the record-breaking ninth different premier class winner in one season.
