Lorenzo stuns with 125cc Rio victory.

But heading into the last lap it was still anyone's race with de Angelis leading from Stoner, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Nieto, Dovizioso and Perugini - all nose-to-tail and each with their own plan for GP glory this afternoon.

Lorenzo pulled a gutsy move on Pedrosa around the outside into turn one, and when the field hit the back straight he sensationally slipstreamed into the lead, literally bar-to-bar with de Angelis and Stoner as he hit the brakes.

The youngster then protected his position through the final few turns to take an unbelievable first ever GP victory, by 0.232secs, and return Derbi to the top step of the podium for the first time in 2003.

The injured Stoner hung on for a hard earned second ever podium finish, while de Angelis crossed the line a fraction behind the Aussie for yet another top three result.

Meanwhile, Pedrosa lost out in the last lap chaos to finish fourth, but still extended his already considerable points lead with Perugini finishing at the tail of the lead group in seventh.

Full results to follow...

1. Lorenzo
2. Stoner
3. de Angelis
4. Pedrosa
5. Nieto
6. Dovizioso
7. Perugini
8. Talmacsi
