Imperious Marc Marquez wins in Spain to claim 60th career win and fifth of 2017.

Marc Marquez attacked straight from the off in Aragon to spectacularly retake sole ownership of the MotoGP World Championship lead.

The Repsol Honda Team rider headed an all-Spanish podium with Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo following him over the line.

Marquez started from fifth on the starting grid but soon made his way through the field, including a pass on Valentino Rossi who was racing just three weeks after a broken leg, before taking Lorenzo on lap 16.

The victory was his fifth of the season, and 60th overall in an illustrious career which has already seen him crowned world champion three times.

Pol Espargaro completed the top 10 for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team with teammate Mika Kallio one place further back.
