Jorge Lorenzo: 2010 MotoGP World Champion

As expected a third place in the Malaysian Grand Prix secured the Fiat Yamaha rider his first ever premier class title.

Jorge Lorenzo is Spain's first MotoGP World Champion since Àlex Crivillé in 1999.

Having battled with team-mate Valentino Rossi and Honda's Andrea Dovizioso in the last knockings, the Mallorcan eventually elected to play it safe.

With Closest challenger Dani Pedrosa out of action due to a broken collorbone, Lorenzo's winning of the title ends a two-year victory streak for Rossi, who triumphed in todays race for the first time since he broke his leg.
