World champion Marc Marquez continued his perfect start to the season by winning the Spanish MotoGP for the first time at Jerez Sunday.The 21-year-old won his 36th Grand Prix in just his 100th race with seven-time world MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi second on a Yamaha, just ahead of Marquez's compatriot and Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa.Marquez, who had won all three previous Grand Prix this season, in Qatar, Texas and Argentina, extended his world championship lead over Pedrosa to 28 points.Pedrosa passed Lorenzo on lap 20 of the 27-lap race, but was unable to overtake Rossi despite several attempts.Rossi's Yamaha teammate, the twice world champion Jorge Lorenzo, had a disappointing afternoon, coming home fourth more than eight seconds behind Marquez in his 200th GP and on his 27th birthday.
