Repsol Honda lead the inaugural MotoGP World Team Championship

The Repsol Honda set-up lead the newly formed MotoGP World Team Championship after Valentino Rossi´s victory in Suzuka. The fall of Tohru Ukawa meant that the team only collected the 25 points gained by their Italian World Champion, although they proved sufficient to lead the provisional standings ahead of the West Honda Pons outfit on 17 points, who collected the 10 points scored by Alex Barros, and the 7 of ninth-placed Loris Capirossi.

Third place in the table is occupied by the Marlboro Yamaha Team with the 16 points that Spaniard Carlos Checa claimed, and currently fourth are the Antena 3 Yamaha D´Antin set-up, who have the 11 points of Norick Abe who finished Sunday´s race fifth. The standings are completed by the Proton KR team with 9 points, MS Aprilia Racing with 8, Fortuna Honda Gresini with 6, Pramac Honda Racing with 4 and finally the Red Bull Yamaha team, also with 4.

Amongst the teams that failed to score any points at the weekend are the Kanemoto Racing and Gauloises Yamaha Tech 3 squads, due to the falls of their respective riders. The Telefonica Movistar Suzuki line-up, despite the second place of wildcard rider Ryo, have yet to register after both their official riders, Kenny Roberts and Sete Gibernau, crashed out at Suzuka.
