Marco Melandri wins his first MotoGP race

The engineers of Marco Melandri did the right thing at the pre-season tests: they covered the computer that displayed the lap times and position, forcing him to focus on what felt right not the lap times of other riders. The results were immediate and he has had a lot better season this year, winning his first ever MotoGP race yesterday

The engineers went one step further yesterday as they never displayed the name of the person behind him. Marco never felt the pressure of Valentine Rossi and continued to make lap record after lap record even though he had more than two seconds advantage.
