Lorenzo takes his third victory of the season at the Austrian MotoGP, after winning a 'bar-to-'bar battle with Marquez.

Dovizioso faded to a safe third after earlier appearing to be held up by Lorenzo, as the Ducati riders reeled in Marquez's Honda.

Ducati thus extended their unbeaten run at the Red Bull Ring to a perfect three in a row.

Lorenzo chose soft-soft tyres, Marquez med-hard and Dovizioso med-med.

Rossi recovered from 14th to 6th, but Yamaha team-mate Vinales was only 12th.

Pol Espargaro was absent after fracturing his collarbone at Brno last weekend.
