Marc Marquez makes it a perfect ten wins in a row, at the Indianapolis MotoGP.

Marquez dominated the second half of the race after finally breaking clear of a thrilling early tussle with Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso.

Lorenzo in turn gradually edged away from team-mate Rossi to secure second place.

Leon Camier was making his MotoGP debut this weekend, in place of the injured Nicky Hayden.

Turns 3, 4, 7, 15 and 16 were reconfigured and the entire infield section resurfaced for 2014.
