The MotoGP field returns to France this weekend for the fifth round of 2014. Reigning World Champion Marc Marquez has dominated proceedings so far this year, already making him the 16th most successful rider for race wins in the history of the World Championship.

Alonso, who ran a three-stop strategy, was 87 seconds behind winner Lewis Hamilton at the flag.
