Rossi races ahead
ITALIAN Valentino Rossi moved to the top of the world championship standings with his fourth victory of the season when he triumphed in the British MotoGP at Silverstone yesterday.
On a rain-drenched track, Rossi, on a Yamaha, finished ahead of two Ducati-riding compatriots, Danilo Petrucci, who picked up the best result of his career, and Andrea Dovizioso.
Australia’s Jack Miller apologised for wiping out LCR Honda teammate Cal Crutchlow.
The 20-year-old rocketed from 16th on the grid to fifth by the third lap before ploughing into Crutchlow.
