Rossi took the physical nature of the race in his stride, accepting it reflected the changing state of the sport at its highest level.
Rossi felt he had the pace to run with Marquez until the end of the race but highlighted an incident with Ecstar Suzuki rider Iannone, which he says thwarted his chances and allowed Marquez to make a break.
The Spaniard, who now leads the championship, claimed his sixth win of the season at the Phillip Island circuit to stretch out a 33-point lead from his rival for the title, Italian Andrea Dovizioso (Team Ducati), who finished 13th, reports Efe.
The Spanish Honda rider, who leads Dovizioso by 11 points with three rounds left, will start on the inside of the grid, alongside his compatriot Maverick Vinales and French Yamaha racer Johann Zarco.

"We are not fantastic but I think my potential is better, so I hope tomorrow to have good conditions to continue to work".
"But when at one moment I thought that I was in the ideal position, Iannone arrived in the hairpin like insane, and Marquez went away".
Marquez took charge of the race seven laps from the chequered flag and steadily pulled away from the pack, leaving Rossi, Vinales and Zarco to fight for the other podium places.
As the laps ticked on, nothing could separate the front eight - as only 1.1s separated them with ten laps remaining, with the Yamaha pair of Rossi and Vinales leading the pursuit of Zarco in the lead.

"You either get angry or not, but that doesn't change anything".
"This is the game and if you want to play it is like this".
"It's a bit more risky, but this is way you have to stay on top".
"I remember I had the fight with Iannone in 2015 and he beat me on the last lap so I try the maximum with also Zarco like this and also with Marquez, so was a great race I enjoy a lot".
