Australian Jack Miller has come third at the Aragon MotoGP in Spain behind defending champion Marc Marquez and Andrea Dovizioso.
Miller had started from fourth on the grid and managed to climb up to a podium finish in the final laps.
Marquez dominated Sunday's race to continue his march towards a sixth world title, having no problem protecting his pole position and speeding away from the pack on his Honda for his fourth-consecutive win at the Motorland Aragon circuit.
It is Marquez's 52nd career MotoGP win and his 200th race in all categories since his 2008 debut in Moto3. It was also his eighth of the season.
The points tally means the Spaniard Marquez will wrap up his fourth successive championship with four races to spare if he wins the next race in Thailand on October 6.
Miller also used his bike's speed to good effect, passing Yamaha's Maverick Vinales for the final podium place on the last lap to end the European part of the season on a high before heading home to Australia for a few days' off.
"I just tried to save the rear tyre," he said after his third podium of the season.
"I didn't want to get sucked into trying to chase Marc down too much and destroy the tyre and just be a sitting duck at the end there.
"I just rode my pace. Mav came past but he was, I think, trying to chase down Marc and towards the end there he just started struggling off the long corners... so I just kept my cool and was able to bring it home on the podium."
