Cal Crutchlow seized on a blunder by new world champion Marc Marquez at Australia's Phillip Island Sunday to win only his second MotoGP.The Briton, who turns 31 next week and was competing in his 103rd MotoGP, capitalized when Marquez made a mistake and crashed out on lap 10 while holding a big lead.The race turned dramatically when Marquez, who claimed his third premier-class world crown with victory in Japan last weekend, slid off his Repsol Honda into the gravel on Turn Four when in command.It was Crutchlow's second victory in premier class after beating Rossi and Marquez in this season's Czech MotoGP in August.Crutchlow had memories of his crash at the same corner two years when he trailed race leader Rossi on the last lap at Phillip Island.Rossi has now finished 16 times on the podium in 20 trips to Australia amid his eight wins across all classes at Phillip Island.
