Luthi dominates for debut 125 victory.

Thomas Lüthi took his first ever victory in the 125cc French Grand Prix from pole position after streaking into a lead of over eight-seconds from the third lap.

The Swiss rider never looked in danger as a packed second group gave chase, with Sergio Gadea and Mika Kallio eventually winning the battle for the remaining two podium positions.

The result means Kallio now leads the championship by twelve points from Lüthi, with Marco Simoncelli in third place after taking fifth place today.
