Marquez celebrates fifth MotoGP title ... by dislocating his shoulder

Spanish rider Marc Marquez won his third straight MotoGP world championship with a nail-biting victory in Japan on Sunday - but his celebrations didn't exactly go to plan.

Scott Redding apologised to Marc Marquez after putting his shoulder out congratulating the Spaniard on his latest title.

Repsol Honda Team Spanish rider Marc Marquez crosses the finish line to win the MotoGP Japanese Grand Prix.

"I already imagined that it will be (decided) here but the important thing is that when you have the first chance, you do it".

"I was out of control, like on the track!"

That heart-in-mouth moment allowed Dovizioso to retake the lead, but Marquez continued to swarm all over the Italian, finally slashing past him with a daredevil move on lap 21 of 24.

"We tried to understand what was the real possibility and we saw that we had exactly the same pace as Dovi", he said.

"But we were starting in sixth place so I asked myself to be in a ideal way in the first laps". Riding in a ideal shape and rhythm and already at the end of the first lap I was second behind Dovi and I tried to study and analyse.

"I just made a small mistake because I wanted to prepare the exit in a better way compared to the lap before, because I was accelerating really good, but I couldn't exit close to Marc and tried to overtake him under braking".

"Then Dovi overtook me again and pushed really hard, we started to be in [1m] 45s again". Only Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini have won more. Dovi's intent was clear: a fastest lap of the race, hammer firmly down and the pin pulled.

"I disappointed because he deserves to be here on the podium with us, but okay, the big boss will enjoy it".

They said: 'Scott Redding joins in.

"Scott stopped and I hugged him and I felt something odd and I dislocated my shoulder". I then stood on the asphalt and my brother and Jose put it back in. its not the first time, maybe it was my weak point of the season, during the season I dislocated it many times training at home.

'In December I need to make a stop with the doctor and for next year it will be flawless'.

Dovizioso, who was the championship runner-up to Marquez in 2017, will have to wait another year for a shot at his first MotoGP premier class title.
