"Play it again": MotoGP and the Italian anthem

Italian riders continue to dominate MotoGP, with Valentino Rossi's win in Qatar making it the eleventh successive victory for the country in the premier class.

The Italian national anthem has been the only song played since Nicky Hayden took victory in Laguna Seca last year. Between then and now, three Italians have headed the podium: Valentino Rossi in Donington, Sachsenring, Brno, Qatar and Phillip Island; Loris Capirossi in Motegi, Sepang and Jerez; and Marco Melandri in Istanbul and Valencia.

The rest of the MotoGP riders, among them Americans, Australians, Frenchmen and Spaniards, Japanese and a Brit, will be looking to put an end to the domination when they reach Turkey in under three weeks' time.
