Australian world champion Casey Stoner won the Portuguese MotoGP in Estoril on Sunday for his second successive victory this season, giving him a one point lead in the title race.

The 26-year-old Honda rider – whose win here was his first in the race and means he has won every single Grand Prix – beat Spain’s 2010 world champion Jorge Lorenzo on a Yamaha.

Stoner’s teammate Dani Pedrosa became only the seventh rider to celebrate 100 podium finishes as he came third.
