Moto GP 2015 Standings after Philip Island, Rossi still leading the Championship

Snapshot: Valentino Rossi leading the championship followed by Jorge Lorenzo and 11 points between both the Yamaha factory riders. Marquez on third place with total 222 points and far behind Lorenzo with absolutely no hope of climbing to the second position.

Australian GP came as a disappointment for the championship leader as Valentino Rossi finished at the fourth position behind Ducati’s Andrea Iannone. The Philip Island race last weekend was one of the most thrilling races of the season and was even titled as ‘Race of the Decade’.

Battle between the Fantastic Four, Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo, Andrea Iannone and Valentino Rossi on the Phillip Island last Sunday will be talked about for years to come. With over 50 passes exchanged between four of the world’s fastest men, and the breathing action produced on the track last race gave us chills to the bone. Soon after the race, Hollywood star, Ewan McGregor instantly posted his updates on social media expressing his emotions regarding the race that certainly was most of the most thrilling races of the season.
