He followed that up with claiming his ninth pole of the season, though he was off the best lap time he achieved in 2015.

The 26-year-old Spaniard continued his strong performance with a flawless performance during Sunday’s 23-lap Aragon Grand Prix where he started his 200th career GP. And we mean flawless – he ran consistent 1:49s for most of the race, and finished by 4.863 seconds ahead of Mission Winnow Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso.

Claiming third was yet another Ducati rider – Pramac Racing’s Jack Miller, who finished 5.430 seconds back. Both Ducati riders beat the man who remained in second for most of the race, Monster Energy Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales.

The Spaniard rode consistently and smooth, but could not get an edge on Marquez. He was then passed by Dovizioso with three laps remaining, and beat to the checkered flag by the by Miller.
