MotoGP: Marc Marquez wins record 10th race in row for Honda

Honda's Marc Marquez won his 10th MotoGP race in a row at Indianapolis to equal Mick Doohan's 1997 record and continue his domination in 2014.
Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo was second with team-mate Valentino Rossi third.
Marquez, 21, fought his way back from fifth to trade the lead with the Yamaha pair and Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso.
"I expected an easier race but at the start it was very close," Marquez said. "My tyres were on the limit so it was difficult. It's great to win again."
Reigning champion Marquez has won every race this season and has also been victorious in all five of his MotoGP races in the United States.

Australian Michael Doohan was the last rider to win 10 races in a row during the 1997 season
Marquez started on pole but found himself in fifth place after the first corner following a lightening start by Dovizioso, on the much improved Ducati, and Rossi, who took the lead in the Yamaha after coming up from the second row.
The defending champion managed to haul his Honda back up to third by the second lap at America's famous Indianapolis Speedway and when Rossi and Dovizioso touched on lap five as the Italian pair duelled for the lead, it left the door wide open for Marquez to take his usual place at the head of the field.
Spaniard Lorenzo then followed countryman Marquez through on the second Yamaha.
Nine-time champion Rossi re-took the lead on the following lap but although the Yamahas battled manfully with Marquez up to half distance, the Spaniard edged away to win by 1.803 seconds from Lorenzo, with Rossi 6.558 secs back in third.
