With the victory, Marquez, a three-time MotoGP world champion, opened up a 33-point lead on main rival Ducati Team‘s Andrea Dovizioso, who finished 13th.

The Repsol Honda star took the lead at Phillip Island with seven laps to go and never looked back.

Movistar Yamaha pair Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales finished second and third respectively.

Pole-sitter Marquez led into turn one, but Jack Miller soon made his move and was a surprise race leader on his Marc VDS Honda for nearly five laps.
