Speed: Seven wins in seven races for Márquez


Seven wins in seven races for Marc Márquez means the fight for the MotoGP world title may now be a one man race.

But the Catalunya Grand Prix was anything but boring.

There is no record of a race like this on the Montmeló circuit, with three riders fighting for victory until the very last second.

Valentino Rossi tried his best to prevent Márquez from becoming the first man to equal his 2002 record of seven wins in a row, but had to settle for second.

Daniel Pedrosa started in pole position and was chasing victory until the last turn, but a mistake as he tried to pass the world champion saw him finish third.

Márquez was the first to cross the finish line, leaving him with a 58-point advantage over Rossi in the overall standings.

Speed will return next time to cover the 2014 F1 Grand Prix in Austria.
