Maverick Vinales powered to a dominant victory at the Australian MotoGP Sunday as newly crowned world champion Marc Marquez was dramatically forced out after a frightening high-speed collision. The Spanish rider, who started second and took the lead after Marquez retired, scored his first victory of the year to break Yamaha's 25-race win drought, taking the checkered flag ahead of Andrea Iannone on a Suzuki."The season has been difficult, I needed that win, Yamaha need that win to give us the motivation to start again next year," he added.While he celebrated, there was disappointment for Honda hotshot Marquez, who sealed his fifth world title in motorcycling's premier class in Japan a week ago.Then it all went pear-shaped for Marquez, leaving the race wide open.
