(Reuters) – Honda’s world champion Marc Marquez won the Czech MotoGP in Brno on Sunday to become only the fourth rider to achieve 50 premier-class victories.

Marquez, who equalled Australian Mick Doohan’s record of 58 top-class pole positions on Saturday, finished ahead of Ducati’s Italian Andrea Dovizioso and Jack Miller of the non-works Pramac Ducati team.

The other three riders to achieve at least 50 wins are Valentino Rossi (89), Giacomo Agostini (68) and Doohan (54).

Spaniard Marquez now leads the MotoGP championship with 210 points, 63 ahead of second-placed Dovizioso (147) while Danilo Petrucci, who finished eighth in Brno, is third (129).
