Rossi level with Doohan for wins

Valentino Rossi's victory in Qatar put the Italian level with Mick Doohan for premier class victories, trailing only Giacomo Agostini's 68 in the record books.

The Camel Yamaha rider started his premier class run in 2000, with his first 500cc victory in Donington Park.

Since then, Rossi has racked up win after win, never dropping below nine per season. Losail was his 54th victory.

The MotoGP star has a total of 80 wins in the various classes. The next goal for the reigning World Champion is Angel Nieto's 90 victories.

Alongside this item, we invite you to remember the Grand Prix in which a youthful Rossi earned his first premier class triumph.
