After a four-way battle for the lead that lasted up until the very last turns of the Catalonia Grand Prix, Marc Marquez emerged with his seventh straight MotoGP win of the season. The defending champion overtook Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo with three laps to go before surviving a near collision with Dani Pedrosa on the last lap of the race.
He did it again. Making a last lap pass at the Italian Grand Prix, Marc Marquez won his sixth consecutive MotoGP race. It’s almost become predictable – in Hollywood big-screen magic fashion – but that doesn’t devalue the incredible streak the young Spaniard is on.
It seemed Marc Marquez’s good fortunes were finally at their end. After four consecutive victories to begin the MotoGP season, an early error from the young Spaniard had him fall from 1st to 10th on the opening lap of the France Grand Prix in Le Mans. The reigning world champion, however, was unphased and methodically worked his way back to the front of the pack. On the 13th lap he overtook Oakley teammate Valentino Rossi and never looked back, securing his fifth straight win and a 42-point cushion in the standings. Rossi ended up second.
