Marc Marquez has wrapped up the 2019 MotoGP world title in stunning style in Thailand, from a heavy FP1 high-side to victory in the race, to complete a stunning championship charge.

The Repsol Honda rider has starred once again winning at the Chang International Circuit by beating Fabio Quartararo in a last-lap duel, a repeat of their Misano battle, which saw Marquez secure the world title in a dramatic finale and with four races to spare.

Quartararo continues to shine in his rookie MotoGP campaign despite missing out on a maiden victory as he comprehensively outperformed both factory Yamaha riders Maverick Vinales and Valentino Rossi.

With the title fight effectively over, Andrea Dovizioso has strengthened his grip on second place in the standings thanks to fourth place for Ducati by fending off nearest rival Alex Rins who had to settle for fifth place for Suzuki.

Franco Morbidelli also returned to form in sixth place for the satellite Petronas Yamaha squad ahead of Suzuki’s Joan Mir, as Rossi is still struggling for Yamaha.

Danilo Petrucci’s form also continues to slide for Ducati, while LCR Honda’s Takaaki Nakagami led the non-Marquez Honda effort in 10th place and almost half a minute behind the newly-crowned eight-time world champion.

It proved to be another painful race weekend to forget for Jorge Lorenzo, with Jack Miller enduring a nightmare starting grid stall with his Pramac Ducati, while in the lower order Francesco Bagnaia, Pol Espargaro and Aleix Espargaro all impressed in Buriram.
