Marc Marquez Reigns in Austin

"He will start from 4th on the grid for tomorrow's Americas GP", the tweet said.

However, Iannone ran wide on the exit of the corner and allowed Marquez to pounce straight back, with the Honda rider immediately putting two seconds between himself and the rest of the field. Keeping it calm, he took his first podium of the season in second, and Iannone did the same in third.

Iannone blitzed his fellow front row starters to lead in Turn 1, but Marquez was already on his back wheel. Factory's Yamaha's Maverick Vinales finished in second, while Suzuki's Andrea Iannone was third in the race. A brief contest from Andrea Iannone on the improving Suzuki was as close as anyone would come to challenging the Repsol Honda man, who pulled away by nearly a second a lap in the opening laps before managing his lead in the second half of the race. Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) completed the top 10, putting in an impressive push to keep Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) behind him after a tough race for the five-time champion. Marc Marquez was at his ruthless best, as he was leading Vinales by over seven seconds and crossed the chequered flag effortlessly.

Fourth place went to Valentino Rossi, while fifth place went to Andrea Dovizioso.

Vinales was on a quick lap and set to challenge Marquez's provisional pole benchmark when he came up on the Honda rider in the final sector and was forced to back out, gesticulating angrily at Marquez as he rode past. "But in the race, I hoped and expected to be a bit stronger to fight for the podium".

Britain's Cal Crutchlow, who had led the standings after winning in Argentina, crashed with 12 laps to go and finished 19th.

Rossi was a distant fourth ahead of Dovizioso, Zarco and the courageous Pedrosa, riding through the pain of his broken wrist to claim a significant haul of points for seventh. Maverick Vinales is not too far behind with 41 points, while last race victor Cal Crutchlow is fourth at 38 point - he made no improvements today and finished outside of points. Tito Rabat ended the race eighth for Reale Avintia Ducati, while Jack Miller finished ninth.

Bradley Smith was the first British rider home in a disappointing 16 place for KTM, ahead of compatriot Scott Redding.
