Dovizioso completes Honda hat-trick

Andrea Dovizioso made it a hat-trick of victories for Honda as he extended his lead in the 125cc World Championship with his second win from the first three races. Dovizioso rode with a maturity beyond his teenage years as he stalked veteran pace setter Roberto Locatelli until the very last lap, declining several invitations to take the lead only to stun his compatriot with a decisive attack in the final few corners.

Locatelli settled for second place in the race and lies second in the championship, fifteen points behind Dovizioso but thirteen ahead of Casey Stoner, who battled through a shoulder injury to take eighth today.

Spanish rider Jorge Lorenzo clinched the final podium spot after escaping from Mirko Giansanti and Hector Barbera with a determined ride.
