Honda rider Marc Marquez tightened his grip on a possible sixth world title with a seventh consecutive victory at the German MotoGP on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Spaniard, who had earlier seen his younger brother Alex win the Moto2 race, led from start to finish to cross the line over four seconds ahead of the Yamaha of Maverick Vinales and Cal Crutchlow on another Honda.

Australian Jack Miller finished in sixth position after starting from fifth on the grid on his Pramac Ducati.

It is Marquez’ fifth victory in nine races this season which takes him to 185 points in the championship standings, 69 clear of the Italian Andrea Dovizioso, who took fifth.

“The race went to plan, I was riding out in front and enjoying myself,” said Marquez.

Ferrari started the season appearing to be the team most likely to take the fight to all-conquering Mercedes, but while their campaign has yet to truly ignite, Red Bull have been making steady improvements and impressed in Austria, which they won, and Silverstone last time out.​

“They have certainly improved in the last two races,” said Mattia Binotto, Ferrari’s team principal.

The father of Valentino Rossi has defended his son as the Yamaha veteran toils through a dismal 2019 campaign.

Rossi, who turned 40 in February, has managed two podiums so far this season, but his 2019 charge was brought to a screaming halt following consecutive accidents at Mugello, Barcelona and Assen.

While just five points behind factory teammate Maverick Vinales in the standings, Rossi’s dreams of a tenth world title have already been quashed as Marc Marquez sprints towards a sixth premier class crown.
