Ha! Lorenzo has got his Spanish flag caught in his chain and his bike has stopped! He'll have to push it back to the pits!

- 

Cue wild celebrations from Lorenzo, who is greeted by two blokes dressed as Mario and Luigi. Not sure what's going on there. Rossi goes over to congratulate Lorenzo, who appears too busy holding up a sign that says 'Game Over'. Cute. Maybe.

20/20

VALENTINO ROSSI WINS!! Superb performance from him. BUT THIS IS JORGE LORENZO'S DAY - HE IS THE NEW WORLD CHAMPION!!

20/20 

Last lap, and can Dovizioso get close enough to make a move on Rossi? It looks unlikely - the gap is still just over half a second, and the race leader remains tantalisingly out of reach.

19/20 

Jorge Lorenzo has dropped off the pace, but he will have plenty to celebrate even if he has to settle for third.

19/20 

Simoncelli barges Aoyama out of the way and the Japanese drops two places - bit of a dodgy move there...

18/20 

Rossi's lead is around half a second ahead of Dovizioso, with Lorenzo about the same amount again further back.

18/20 

Great move by Bautista, taking Aoyama and Simoncelli in one fell swoop to go fifth!

17/20 

Spies and Simoncelli have been caught by Aoyama and Hayden, so we now have a massive four-way punch up for positions five to eight!

16/20 

Rossi back in front! Tremendous job outbraking Dovi to re-take the lead! Classic racing here!

15/20 

Dovizioso goes back to the front! He makes a superb move on Rossi and sticks it!

14/20 

There is a decent dust-up developing for fourth place, with Spies and Simoncelli going wheel to wheel.

13/20 

Rossi has opened up a mini gap ahead of Dovi, who is getting reeled in by Lorenzo. Is the Honda starting to fade?

12/20 

How they stand: 1-Rossi, 2-Dovizioso, 3-Lorenzo, 4-Simoncelli, 5-Spies, 6-Bautista, 7-Aoyama, 8-Hayden, 9-De Puniet, 10-Melandri, 11-Barbera, 12-Kallio.

12/20 

Lorenzo has dropped a second or so off the front two. Looks like he'll settle for third place and a world championship. And why not?

11/20

Rossi overtakes Lorenzo! And now he sets his sights on race leader Dovizioso... AND ROSSI TAKES THE LEAD!! Brilliant performance from the maestro!

10/20

Hello to you! Valentino Rossi clocks a lap record 2:02.117 and is right on the back wheel of Jorge Lorenzo. This should be brilliant stuff.

9/20 

Colin Edwards is touring, and it's all over for the Tech 3 Yamaha man. We're down to 12 riders out there.

9/20 

Lorenzo is under pressure here. He won't want to become champion by losing to his increasingly bitter rival and team-mate Valentino Rossi.

8/20 

Lorenzo runs wide and DOVIZIOSO takes the lead! And Rossi is closing all the time!

7/20 

Dovi clocks a fastest lap, but Rossi responds with one of his own and the outgoing champ is just a second and a half behind the man in second place.

7/20

Down goes Espargaro! Rather embarrassingly, he has the spill while battling with his Pramac Ducati team-mate Mika Kallio.

6/20 

Good battle for seventh between Bautista, Edwards and Melandri... the Suzuki man Bautista prevailing at the moment but it's close-fought stuff.

5/20 

Well, Rossi will no longer be the world champion at the end of this race, but he is going out with a bang. He takes Simoncelli and is up to third - but he has a two-second gap to bridge if he wants to catch Lorenzo and Dovizioso up front.

4/20 

Rossi picks up another couple of positions, sneaking past Spies and Hayden to go fourth. He is all over the back of Marco Simoncelli.

3/20 

Valentino Rossi is up to sixth place and has just set the fastest lap of the race. 2:03.271.

2/20 

Lorenzo is your front-runner, and Dovizioso is the only man with him following Stoner's fall.

2/20

STONER IS OUT!!! He loses the back end and that's the end of that for the Ducati man.

1/20

GOOO!!! Good start from Lorenzo, who leads into the opening corner, good start from Dovizioso who goes second. Rossi has dropped back to eighth.

- 

The formation lap is complete and we are seconds away from a green light at Sepang.

Grid: 1-Jorge Lorenzo, 2-Nicky Hayden, 3-Andrea Dovizioso, 4-Ben Spies, 5-Casey Stoner, 6-Valentino Rossi, 7-Colin Edwards, 8-Alvaro Bautista, 9-Loris Capirossi, 10-Marco Melandri, 11-Marco Simoncelli, 12-Aleix Espargaro, 13-Randy De Puniet, 14-Hiroshi Aoyama, 15-Hector Barbera, 16-Mika Kallio.
