Victory and series lead for Marc Márquez

Victory and series lead for Marc Márquez

Second consecutive win for the reigning World Champion, in a race in which Dani Pedrosa was involved in a crash when fighting for the podium.

Marc Márquez held onto his starting position, was fourth before finishing the first lap, third one lap later and second the following time around.

He took the lead on the eighth lap and held onto it for his second victory in four races. He heads the overall standings with a twelve point advantage over closest rival Johann Zarco.

Dani Pedrosa remained in the leading group with Márquez, Lorenzo and Dovizioso, until the eighteenth lap. At that time, he was involved in a crash when the latter two both went wide off a pass attempt and contact was made with the Repsol Honda team rider.
