Jorge Lorenzo dominates the Valencia MotoGP season finale, his final race for Yamaha.

Marc Marquez broke clear of a thrilling battle for second to put late pressure on Lorenzo, with Andrea Iannone getting the better of Valentino Rossi for third in his last race for Ducati. Rossi and Iannone fought throughout the race.

Today's result also means that Honda wrapped up the 2016 manufacturers' title and Movistar Yamaha the teams' world championship.

Dani Pedrosa was returning from injury, walking away unharmed after a crash. KTM was making its factory MotoGP debut as a wild-card entry for test rider Mika Kallio, ahead of next season's full-time entry.
