Marc Marquez shows maturity to extend MotoGP lead

Dani Pedrosa took his third win of the season here in Sepang but the real race was for second between Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo.
They were clashing and bumping and shoving a fair bit which was enthralling. One of them could easily have fallen off but they didn't, and Marquez in the end managed to pull away to extend his championship lead to 43 points with three races left.
If he gets seven points more than Lorenzo in Australia next week then the championship will be his, in his first season in MotoGP, which will be exceptional to win so early.
Marquez has spiced up the championship and lifted the game more than I could have believed.
He seems to take more risks than most of the other guys and he's great to watch - we all love him.
He's on the edge of everything, his tyres, his elbows and his knees - he just is the fastest guy on the track at the moment, he's chasing a championship and trying to be careful but he doesn't really know the meaning of the word.
But considering he's a young fearless rider that charges and wants to win everything, today was a very good sign that he's looking to get a championship wrapped up and he definitely showed a mature side.
