2006 In Review: Capirossi puts Ducati on top

Loris Capirossi's victory at Jerez in the 2006 season's curtain raiser marked his first time as leader of the overall classification. The result was also a memorable first for his Ducati team, who led the team standings after the Spanish race.

The Borgo Panigale outfit had failed to top the leaderboards since their return to the premier class in 2003. Excellent preseason form was an indicator of their potential, and Capirossi followed it up with a pole position and a win ahead of debutant Dani Pedrosa.
