Repsol Honda, double leader

The Repsol Honda team left the Grand Prix of Turkey in a strong position, despite Dani Pedrosa's crash on the final lap whilst in third.

They lead the team championship, which they have held since the first race of the season, and add to that the first place occupied by Nicky Hayden in the riders classification. The American rider has put the team in first place for the first time since Valentino Rossi in 2003.

Hayden leads from Loris Capirossi by a solitary point, and from Marco Melandri by six. In the team standings the official team is hotly pursued by Fortuna Honda, who earned double the points of the Repsol branch in Istanbul. They lie just six points behind.
