Marquez finishes first in the Spanish Grand Prix

Marc Marquez is keen to get back on the track and work on improvements, despite returning to the top of the MotoGP standings on an ultimately successful weekend at the Spanish Grand Prix.

In the 9th lap Hondo's Marquez makes his move and takes the lead with Dovizioso moving ahead of Pedrosa to take third.

Indeed, because what happened eight laps from the end is truly incredible with the smash-up that, with a single blow, left Jorge Lorenzo, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso in the gravel.

As Marquez edged clear, Lorenzo began to hold up Ducati team-mate Dovizioso, who had recovered from a subdued first lap, with the pair nearly clashing at the final corner. All three riders walked away from the crash, although Pedrosa complained of severe pain in his right hip.

With them out of the way, a grateful Marquez not only wins the race, but even manages to entrench himself in the championship lead: "I think what was done today is great - the number 93 rider said - I wasn't so sure that I would be able to win".

The race continues with Marc Marquez riding to victory easily followed by Johann Zarco in second, while Iannone takes third ahead of Petrucci and Rossi.
