Marc Marquez has won the 2014 MotoGP world title for the second year in a row after his second-place finish in the Japanese Grand Prix.

The 21-year-old Spaniard stretched his championship lead over compatriot Dani Pedrosa and Italian veteran Valentino Rossi to an unassailable 82 points – with just three races of the season remaining – after finishing runner-up to Jorge Lorenzo at the Motegi circuit on Sunday.

Lorenzo finished 1.638seconds ahead of Honda’s Marquez, who overtook several riders before passing, and then holding off, Rossi midway through the race.

Six-time world champion Rossi claimed the final podium place on his Yamaha but the day belonged to Marquez as he retained his title in emphatic style.
