Marc Marquez is one victory away from retaining the MotoGP world title after winning the Aragon Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Repsol Honda rider is now 98 points clear of second-placed Andrea Dovizioso in the championship standings after 14 rounds.

And Marquez will be crowned champion for a sixth time if he adds a win in the Thailand Grand Prix on October 6.

The 26-year-old triumphed on Sunday having started the race in pole position and led throughout, while Ducati's Dovizioso came second - having started 10th - and Jack Miller of Pramac was third.
