- From the section MotoGP
Casey Stoner crosses the finish line to win the 2011 MotoGP title with victory at his home grand prix in Australia.
The Honda rider only had to finish in the top six to be crowned champion after Jorge Lorenzo was ruled out of the race with a hand injury suffered in a crash in the warm-up on Sunday morning.
Stoner last won the title in 2007 and it was his fifth victory in succession at the Phillip Island circuit.
