Austin MotoGP: Marc Marquez extends winning streak for Honda
World Champion Marc Marquez of Spain won the Grand Prix of the Americas for the third straight year on Sunday to get his 2015 MotoGP campaign on track.
After a disappointing fifth-place finish in the season-opening race in Qatar, Marquez rebounded at the Texas track where he won for the first time in the elite MotoGP class.
A day after capturing pole position with dramatic late-session heroics, the 22-year-old Honda rider was in dominant form.
He finished more than 2.3 seconds ahead of Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso, with nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi third on a Yamaha.
Rossi is one point clear of Dovizioso at the top of the points table with Marquez another four points back in third place.
