(Reuters) - MotoGP champion Marc Marquez snatched the lead from Andrea Dovizioso at the death to win the inaugural Thailand Grand Prix on Sunday and take a huge stride toward a third successive title.

After fierce wheel-to-wheel racing in the closing laps at Buriram, the Honda-riding Spaniard nosed in front at the last corner and edged the Italian by 0.115 seconds in a thrilling duel.

The win extended Marquez's lead to 77 points over Ducati's Dovizioso with four races remaining, and he can wrap up the series in Japan in two weeks with a win at Motegi.

Yamaha-rider Maverick Vinales finished third ahead of team mate Valentino Rossi.
