He won his first title in 2007 while racing with the Factory Ducati team, a season in which he dominated from the first race and secured 10 victories winning by a margin of 125 points. Casey Stoner also won the title during his first season with the Repsol Honda Team in 2011. Stoner secured the title in front of his home crowd at Phillip Island in grand style by also winning the race, his 5th victory in a row in Australia.
This special photo edition captures such an iconic moment during the 2008 Laguna Seca Grand Prix. Stoner and Rossi developed a huge rivalry and their battles on track were always something special to watch. The US Grand Prix in 2008 was one of the highlights, on this occasion Rossi was victorious, albeit many including Stoner thought Rossi had impeded the track limits and was racing very dangerously. A comment Rossi disregarded and only contributed to genuine hard racing. Either way, this moment is now etched in history and will always be remembered.
