Rossi peerless on points

Valentino Rossi wasn't even on the podium, but his fourth position in Turkey was enough to give the MotoGP star a new record for his collection, that of overall points in the World Championship.

The Italian has a total of 2899 points to his name as of the third race of the season, knocking Max Biaggi off the top of the all-time leaderboard.

Rossi's points comprise 432 points in two 125cc seasons, 510 in 250cc over two years, and 1957 in the premier class since 2000.
