Rossi's season of records continues

The Marlboro Grand Prix of Qatar saw Valentino Rossi back on top step of the podium after missing victory in Japan and Malaysia, where second place was good enough for him to secure the title.

By clinching his tenth win of the 2005 season, Rossi has beaten the record he set last year for most victories in a single campaign by a Yamaha rider in the premier-class.

With three rounds to go, Rossi will now be aiming for the record of most wins in a single season - a record currently held by Australian Mick Doohan who notched 12 victories in 1997.

However, Rossi's win at the Losail International Circuit allowed the Gauloises Yamaha rider to equal Eddie Lawson's tally of Grand Prix podiums in the premier-class. With 78 top-three finishes, he's now the third in the list of all-time podium finishers in the blue ribbon class behind Mick Doohan (95 podiums) and Giacomo Agostini (88 podiums).
