Istanbul, TURKEY:  MotoGP champion Italian Marco Melandri (R) celebrates on the podium after winning the Turkish Moto GP ahead of compatriot and world champion Valentino Rossi (L) in Istanbul, 23 October 2005. Melandri, riding a Honda, won the Turkish Moto GP ahead of compatriot and world champion Valentino Rossi who failed in his bid to equal the season's record of legendary Australian Mick Doohan. US Nicky Hayden came third as Melandri, the 2002 champion in the 250 category, took his first GP victory at the inaugural Turkish Moto GP, the 16th and penultimate race of the world championship.
