The 2014 Brno race will forever be remembered as the day this 21-year-old superstar lost his bid to win his 11th consecutive race.
But Marquez retains a special place in the record books being one of only four riders to win 10 or more consecutive races in the history of MotoGP, the others being Giacomo Agostini, John Surtees and Mick Doohan.
But true to his pre-race commitment to race for championship points on the days he could not fight for wins, Marquez's fourth place sees him retain a stranglehold on the world championship chase.
Marquez has 263 points, a massive 77 ahead of Pedrosa (186) followed by Rossi (173) and Lorenzo (137).
Marquez has said that his career will be defined by the number of world titles he wins, not the number of races.
Pedrosa won the race in stylish fashion, racing alone and controlling the gap to Lorenzo over the second half of the 22 laps.
This was Pedrosa's first victory since the Malaysian GP last October.
