Yamaha set for triple crown

Yamaha ready to complete 2010 clean sweep.
Yamaha, which has already won the 2010 MotoGP Riders' title with Jorge Lorenzo and Teams' title with Fiat Yamaha, needs only a top-five finish for one of its riders in Sunday's Portuguese Grand Prix to settle the Constructors' championship.

Honda starts Sunday's penultimate round of the championship 39 points from Yamaha, which is on target to win its 13th constructor's title in the premier-class.

They will be the favorites for next season, too, presumably. With Casey and Vale moving manufacturers, Jorge and Dani will be the only guys from the top 4 staying on. This continuity will count for a lot. Let's see if Jorge can defend his title admirably - seeing as Vale is the only rider so far in the MotoGP era to actually defend his championships successfully.
