It was yet another record breaking day for the 20 year Marquez after winning at every American GP this year and now leads the World Championship standings by 21 points.

There was a long battle between Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi, Tech3’s Cal Crutchlow and GO&FUN Honda Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista, but it was Rossi who prevailed against the others taking fourth place. LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl claimed seventh he was followed on by a fantastic Bradley Smith who capitalised on the battle of the Ducati’s, beating them both to the finish line and taking eighth. It was Nicky Hayden who at his home GP beat his team-mate Andrea Dovizioso to take ninth and tenth positions.
