Casey Stoner (Honda) won his third MotoGP in a row today at the Silverstone circuit and takes the points lead in the championship series. In wet conditions, Stoner dominated the field by finishing more than 15 seconds ahead of Andrea Dovizioso (Honda). A plucky Colin Edwards (Yamaha) took third place despite his recent broken collarbone.
Stoner has been allowed to finish five of the six races this year (thanks to a lowside by Valentino Rossi at Jerez), and has won four of those (he also has four poles), while finishing on the podium in the fifth. He now has a commanding points lead in the series thanks, in part, to a DNF by Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) who was one of the riders going down on the slippery track (the others being Honda’s Marco Simoncelli and Yamaha’s Ben Spies).
