Marc Marquez rides into the British motorcycling Grand Prix this weekend on a two-race blip, but so dominant is the Spanish world champion that he still increased his lead in the MotoGP standings without winning. The Honda star had won five of the previous nine races before starting August by finishing third in the Czech Republic and second in Austria. Because his closest challenger, the veteran Italian Valentino Rossi (Yamaha), failed to make either podium, Marquez added 13 points to his lead.With eight races to go, Marquez is 59 points ahead of Rossi.Dovizioso was also preparing to race in the wet.
