125: Bautista takes win number eight at Estoril.

Alvaro Bautista stormed to his eighth victory of the 2006 season with a dominant performance in Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril.

The Spaniard who already had the championship title under his belt now becomes the rider to have scored the most points in one season (325) and the most podiums (14).

Over fifteen seconds behind there was a photo finish for second place, with Bautista's team-mate Hector Faubel snatching third place on the line from Mika Kallio.

The Finn was content nonetheless, as an earlier crash for Mattia Pasini means he is guaranteed as the runner-up in the championship with the battle now on for third place between the Italian and Faubel.

1. Bautista (Aprilia)
2. Faubel (Aprilia) +15.098secs
3. Kallio (KTM) +15.112secs
