Marc Marquez (Honda) continued his spectacular championship defense by taking his third win in a row from pole position. Marquez is the first rider to open the year in this fashion since Giacomo Agostini won the first three races in the Premier class from pole position back in 1971.
Marquez was followed home by his teammate Dani Pedrosa, with Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) finishing third. Lorenzo jumped out front and led most of the race before being passed by the Repsol Honda teammates.
Marquez continues to increase his points lead over Pedrosa. For additional details, results and points visit the official MotoGP site.
