Marc Marquez has extended his lead at the top of the table in the MotoGP World Championship after beating Stefan Bradl at Laguna Seca.

The 20 year-old who had never raced at the California circuit before stretched his advantage over his Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa to 16 points after producing a superb ride.

Valentino Rossi finished third and Alvaro Bautista fourth with an injured Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo fifth and sixth respectively.

Britain’s Cal Crutchlow finished in his worst place of the season after coming seventh place.

A minute’s silence was taken place marking the death of Italian rider Andrea Antonelli who was killed in an accident during the World Supersport race in Moscow earlier on Sunday.

Crutchlow had a bad start after starting fifth on the grid and did not make any impression on the injured duo Lorenzo and Pedrosa.

MotoGP will be taking a month-long break and the next round will be taking a break before starting again in Indianapolis on 18 August.
