Stoner wins his final MotoGP race in Australia

Casey Stoner won his sixth successive Australian Grand Prix in his final home MotoGP race before retiring, while Jorge Lorenzo clinched the season title with a second-place finish Sunday at Phillip Island.
Dani Pedrosa, the only rider who could have caught fellow Spaniard Lorenzo for the world championship, crashed out of the 27-lap race while leading on the second lap, sliding out of control in a corner.
Lorenzo held a 23-point championship lead going into Sunday's race and needed only three points to clinch the title.
Britain's Cal Crutchlow was third Sunday.
Stoner will retire at the end of this season at the age of 27.
