Marc Marquez secured a third-straight MotoGP crown – and fifth of his career – with victory in Japan.

The win at Motegi was the eighth of the season for the Spaniard and drew him level on five titles with Mick Doohan and only Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini have won more.

Marquez started from sixth but it did not take him long to find his way to the front of race.

Pole-sitter Andrea Dovizioso took advantage of a Marquez error to move into the lead but with just three laps remaining the Spaniard claimed the lead once again.

Dovizioso lost control and slid onto the grass as he tried to pass Marquez handing the Honda rider victory and the title.
