Seven-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi won the Commercial Bank Grand Prix of Qatar for the first time since 2010 holding off the blistering Ducati of Andrea Dovizioso by a little under two hundredths of a second at the floodlit Losail International Circuit yesterday.

The Movistar Yamaha rider started the race in eighth position, fell to 10th briefly, before working his way up to fourth behind the two Ducatis and team-mate Jorge Lorenzo, and then to a victory over the last two laps.
Dovizioso’s team-mate Andrea Iannone completed the podium, while Lorenzo was fourth ahead of Repsol Honda’s defending champion Marc Marquez.

“I have said this before but for me this is one of the best wins,” Rossi said after the race. “We did a great job in the practice. My bike was fantastic.”
