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.
