As always, the BT Sport team were at the heart of the action in the paddock to bring you all the reaction from all the protagonists on race day.
Marquez with one hand on the trophy?
Marc Marquez came out on top at Phillip Island following a stunning race which saw the top seven over-take one another 73 times and separated by just +5.619 seconds - the closest ever gap in the MotoGP era. Gavin Emmett, Keith Huewen and Julian Ryder look back on that incredible race and ponder whether Andrea Dovizioso can keep the title challenge going on to the last round at Valencia.
Dovi beats Marquez in a classic
Gavin Emmett, Keith Huewen and Julian Ryder are still on a high from the simply stunning, last lap battle between Andrea Dovizioso and Marc Marquez at Japan. What a race it was. Now we wonder whether Dovi can over turn the 11 point gap on Marquez and win the championship? Hear from both title protagonists in this podcast, while elsewhere we analyse Danilo Petrucci's fine season, why the satellite Yamahas are out-performing the factory bikes and the title chases in Moto2 and Moto3.
The championship is level
I know we say it every week, but what a championship this is turning out to be.
