MOTOGP: Marc Marquez equals Stoner’s record

Marc Marquez took the Repsol Honda to a record-breaking victory at the HJC Helmets Grand Prix de France equalling Casey Stoner’s 38 premier class wins, and extending his lead in the championship to 36 points over Movistar Yamaha’s Maverick Viñales as he cruised to victory over Danilo Petrucci and Valentino Rossi. Marquez, the only rider to use the hard rear Michelin tyre, made the best start from the lights but it was Ducati’s Jorge Lorenzo who powered into the lead at turn one. Behind the Spaniard, Andrea Dovizioso and Johann Zarco were having a great battle before the Ducati title contender crashed out on lap five. The Honda man took an advantage of a rare mistake by Zarco on lap six when he ran wide on the Tech3 Yamaha but in true Zarco style he fought back and retook Marquez two corners later.
