Editor@Throttle|Updated: May 6, 2019 14:51

Defending MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez shot into the lead in Turn 1 of the Grand Prix of Spain on Sunday and never looked back, cruising to his second win of the year. The win saw Marquez claim top spot in the standings, one point ahead of Rins and three of Dovizioso. Rossi is fourth, nine points behind the leader.


Franco Morbidelli was the only one who could follow the pace of the Spaniard early, while in the background, championship leader Dovizioso ran wide after a pass on Vinales, losing even more time. Ducati had the raw pace but struggled in the corners, and with Rins also getting involved in the battle, the gap between the top three and the rest of the pack grew steadily.
