Ducati's Casey Stoner secures Australian GP win

Casey Stoner has won the Australian MotoGP at Phillip Island for the fourth successive year.
Having earned pole position on his 25th birthday on Saturday, the Australian Ducati rider led from start to finish to seal the win in superb fashion.
Stoner opened up a 1.5 second gap between himself and newly crowned MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo within the first lap.
He eventually finished 8.598secs ahead of Lorenzo, with Valentino Rossi third.
Rossi, the 2009 world champion from Italy, stole in to finish third courtesy of a bold overtaking manoeuvre on United States rider Nicky Hayden in the final lap of the race.

Everybody was expecting the fourth win but I attacked this race like any other and we were able to control the gap at the front and bring home the win

His third place finish ensured that he and Spaniard Lorenzo sealed the 2010 Team Championship with two rounds remaining.
