Penalised Toseland 14th in Australia

James Toseland was left wondering what might have been as he finished 14th in the latest round of the MotoGP at Phillip Island in Australia.

The Tech 3 Yamaha rider was deemed to have jumped the start and faced a ride-through penalty early on.

But the Ramsey redisent didn't agree with the decision, "I'm really struggling to describe how I feel right now, all I can say is I feel the jump start decision was incredibly harsh and I am extremely disappointed.

"I have looked at the start on TV and I can't see I've done anything wrong.

"I was confident of a strong race today and I was latched onto the back of the group fighting for fifth.

"I felt my pace was strong enough to have put up a strong fight for a positive result, but the ride-through ended all that.

"I'm not going to let this disappointment stop me from giving my all to finish this season on a high at the last two races."

The race was won by Australian Casey Stoner for the third year in a row.

Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa completed the podium.
