Rossi could achieve premier class podium century in Malaysia

Having taken victory in last year's visit to Sepang, Valentino Rossi is keen to repeat that performance this weekend at the Polini Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, as he aims to become the first MotoGP rider ever to score 100 career podiums in the premier class - his third place finish at Phillip Island last Sunday having taken his tally to an unsurpassed 99.

The Fiat Yamaha rider's impressive podium total in MotoGP includes six from the past six seasons at Sepang, including four victories.

The last time that Rossi did not finish on the podium at Sepang was his second ever race in the premier-class in 2000, when he crashed out on lap four while in second place.

With his next top three finish he will become the first rider to reach the milestone of 100 podium finishes in MotoGP and he already has more premier class podiums than any other rider in the history of World Championship, with Mick Doohan's total being 95 and Giacomo Agostini's total 88.
