    (CNN)A chaotic and incident packed San Marino MotoGP saw Marc Marquez revive his title hopes as home hero Valentino Rossi extended his lead in the 2015 championship race.

    The official MotoGP website rightly described it as 'Misano Mayhem' as changeable conditions led to a number of pit stops and tire changes with two-time champion Marquez making the correct late call on his Repsol Honda.
      A switch to slick tires on a drying track saw him top the podium ahead of Bradley Smith and Scott Redding, the first time a British pair had been on the podium at this level since 1979.
