In the MotoGP class, Andrea Dovizioso took his first pole position since the 2010 Japanese Grand Prix. However, Jorge Lorenzo won his second successive race,[4] but a second-place finish for Marc Márquez was good enough for his second consecutive premier class world championship, and his fourth world title in total.[5] The podium placings were completed by Valentino Rossi, who finished in third place.[4] In the supporting categories, Thomas Lüthi took his first victory since 2012 by winning the Moto2 race,[6] while in the Moto3 race, Álex Márquez took advantage of a collision between Ajo Motorsport teammates Jack Miller and Danny Kent,[7] to take his third victory of 2014.
