The newly-crowned world motorcycling champion Marc Marquez powered to victory in the season-ending Valencia MotoGP on Sunday to set a new record of 13 wins in a year.
The 21-year-old Spaniard led from the 11th lap on his Honda and took the chequered flag ahead of Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa.
Rossi continued his strong finish to the season and was guaranteed second place in the championship after Jorge Lorenzo retired from the race.
Lorenzo decided to change tyres with the threat of rain in the air but the move failed to pay off as there were only a few drops.
Marquez sealed his second successive world title in Japan last month and has now beaten the record for victories in a season which he'd shared with Australian Mick Doohan who won 12 races in 1997.
He was also pleased for his brother Alex who won the Moto3 championship earlier in the day at the Valencia track.
