Marquez wins French GP

Spain’s defending MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez of Honda won the French Grand Prix at Le Mans yesterday ahead of Italian pair Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci of Ducati. It was Marquez’s 47th top-level GP win and his third of the season, but for Honda this was a 300th top-level MotoGP victory. Jim Redman, of then Rhodesia, won its first one back in 1966 at Hockenheim, and no other manufacturer has achieved top step of the podium on so many occasions. Starting from pole Marquez won by almost 2 seconds from Dovizioso and the victory set up a double celebration for the family as his younger brother Alex Marquez won the Moto2 GP earlier in the day. Marquez now leads the championship with 95 points, eight more than Dovizioso and 20 ahead Alex Rins of Suzuki, who could only manage 10th yesterday, while Italian veteran Valentino Rossi of Yamaha is fourth on 72 points.
