Valencia MotoGP 2016 Preview: Unlike the 2015 Grand prix in Valencia, this time the title race is already done and dusted and not much to play for as far as the top three positions are concerned but still all the top drivers will be hoping to end the season on high after what was a roller coaster season where we had 9 different grand prix winners.
The decision, whether Rossi will start normally with qualifying grid position or he will be given a penalty and start at the back of the grid, will be out before the sundays big race and although it can have major impact on his chances to win the title we can safely assume that the title race will go down to the last few laps.

Jorge Lorenzo wins last Grand Prix of the season in Valencia and with that takes home 2015 MotoGP title. Lorenzo won 7 races this season and won his 5th motoGP title beating of the competition from Rossi who started at the back of the grid and finished fourth.
Lorenzo was always in control throughout this weekend, fastest in the qualifying started in the pole position and lead the race from flag to flag as he wins 2015 title with 5 points margin to Rossi. Honda riders Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa finished close second and third while Valentino Rossi earned a very respectable fourth place having started at the back of the grid.
Honda rider Marc Marquez is being slatted for apparently not pushing to overtake Lorenzo when he had the chance, to top that off he looked like fighting for second place when clearly Pedrosa had more pace and gave it a real go in last three laps to overtake Marquez.
