Spain's MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez made it eight wins in eight races with victory for Honda in a wet Dutch TT at Assen on Sunday.

After a brief rain delay, the 21-year-old finished 6.7 seconds ahead of Ducati's Italian Andrea Dovizioso to become the first rider since Giacomo Agostini in 1971 to win the first eight races of a season.

Marquez now has a perfect 200 points, with Italian Valentino Rossi and Spain's Dani Pedrosa level on 128.
