Sachsenring, Germany: Honda rider Marc Marquez extended his lead at the top of the championship with a seventh consecutive victory at the German MotoGP on Sunday. 

The 26-year-old Spaniard led from start to finish to cross the line well clear of Maverick Vinales and Cal Crutchlow.

Earlier, Marquez's brother Alex regained top spot in the Moto2 championship standings after charging to victory.

The 23-year-old, also riding a Honda, started on pole but did not hit the front until the fifth lap after which he moved clear of the field, setting a new lap record of 1min 24.317sec.

The South African Brad Binder claimed his second successive second place on his KTM while local rider Marcel Schroetter collected a third podium of the season on his Kalex.

"I felt good from the beginning. My start was bad but I came back and found a good gap," said Marquez who now leads the championship with 136 points, eight clear of the Swiss Thomas Luethi.

The Italian rider Lorenzo Dalla Porta won the Moto3 race on his Honda ahead of the Spaniards Marcos Ramirez and Aron Canet.

Dalla Porta now leads the standings with 125 points, two clear of Canet.
