Ducati win Constructors' and Teams' titles

The brilliant performances of Ducati's Australian homecoming king Casey Stoner and his Italian team-mate Loris Capirossi at Phillip Island secured the Constructors' World Championship for the Italian factory and the Teams' World Championship for Ducati Marlboro.

The brilliant performances of Ducati's Australian homecoming king Casey Stoner and his Italian team-mate Loris Capirossi, as they scored a one-two at Phillip Island in the GMC Australian Grand Prix, secured the Constructors' World Championship for the Italian factory and the Teams' World Championship for Ducati Marlboro.

The remarkable season for Stoner and his colleagues from the Borgo-Panigale-based outfit means Ducati have become the first non-Japanese manufacturer to win the premier class Constructors' title since 1973, when MV Agusta were champions.

In his first race as newly crowned World Champion, Stoner led from start to finish, while Motegi winner Capirossi fought through from fifth on the grid for another podium.

Stoner's ninth victory of the year is also the team's fifth win from the past six races and the Ducati's tenth win of this season.

Ducati's Team Manager Livio Suppo enthused: "Unbelievable. It's been a great way to celebrate winning the Constructors' and Teams' title, first and second. It's the second time we've done it after the first one in Valencia last year with Troy (Bayliss) and Loris, so apparently we need an Australian and an Italian to finish first and second. It's a dream come true, so we are super happy!"
