Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso won the dramatic and damp Malaysian Grand Prix to keep his MotoGP World title open after Marc Marquez finished fourth. The Italian adopted a cool strategy and worked hard to stay in the front pack as a downpour just before the start left standing water on much of the Sepang circuit.
Dovizioso, who now has six wins this season, quickly defused speculation that teammate Jorge Lorenzo had been under orders to let him through at turn 15 when the Spaniard was in the lead. Lorenzo was 0.743 seconds slower while Frenchman Johann Zarco was third at 45:01.236.
