Spanish racer Marc Marquez took his third consecutive MotoGP victory at the Grand Prix of Japan on Sunday after his rival Andrea Dovizioso fell on the penultimate lap as he tried to find a way past the Honda rider.


Marquez, 25, now equals the five MotoGP titles of Australian Mick Doohan by winning his fifth MotoGP world title, with only Valentino Rossi (seven) and Giacomo Agostini (eight) beating him.


Marquez, who has already won two of his previous titles in Japan, finished 102 points ahead of Dovizioso with three races to go.


Dovizioso started on the pole and led for most of the race until Márquez, who had started sixth on the grid, overtook him with four laps to go.


Dovizioso tried to pass Marquez on the penultimate lap, but leaned too far and fell. The Italian rider was able to continue the race but finally finished 18th.


“I feel very, very good,” said Marquez after celebrating the victory with the Honda team, who were joined by the company’s CEO Takahiro Hachigo at the manufacturer’s home race.
