You've got to feel for Italian supersport rider Riccardo Russo after miscalculating the laps and celebrating one lap too early, as everyone blasts on.

It's a simple mistake. Julian Simon lost a home win in the 125GPs Catalunya in the same fashion back in 2009 and Giovanni Bussei, confused by the white flag indicating the final lap in the AMA series, was caught out and celebrated one lap short from the chequered flag.
