Five-time and reigning world champion Marc Marquez took an important step towards his sixth league title, winning the Grand Prix of Aragon in an inimitable style.

The Spaniard dominated from the very beginning of the weekend, when in the first Friday training he brought the opponents more than one and a half seconds. And in the race, he once again proved his superiority on the track in Alcaniz. By the end of the first third of the distance, Marquez came off for five seconds. Only some kind of disaster could prevent Mark from winning his 200th Grand Prix in all classes of the championship. But he did not make a single mistake, and the technique did not fail. Honda came to the finish line 4.8 seconds earlier than its closest pursuer, Andrea Dovitiosio, who straightened three laps to the checkered flag with Maverick Vinales.

Vignales at the end of the race so lost the pace that he also missed Jack Miller, as a result of being left without a podium. He tried to regain third place, but the Australian turned out to be extremely unyielding and repulsed all the attacks of the Spaniard.

MotoGP newcomer Fabio Cuartararo, despite a promising second place at the start, fell out of the fight for the podium before the middle of the race and was only fifth at the finish.

Complemented the top ten at the finish of the Grand Prix of Aragon Cal Kratchlow, Aleish Espargaro, Valentino Rossi, Alex Rins and Takaaki Nakagami.

In the championship, Marc Marquez increased his lead to Andrea Dovizioso to 98 points. For the early championship in the next stage, which will be held on October 6 in Thailand, he will need to win back only two points from the Ducati rider.
