"My strategy was just start, push and that's it", said Marquez, who shrugged off boos from the crowd reacting to a champion whose on-track clashes with rivals have been a talking point of the season.
However, Iannone ran wide on the exit of the corner and allowed Marquez to pounce straight back, with the Honda rider immediately putting two seconds between himself and the rest of the field. The 2018 MotoGP Austin GP also turned out to be a big delight for Suzuki as Iannone took the team's first podium of the season, shutting down several questions on his performance in the process.
This means that Viñales will start from pole position and moving up to the front row alongside Iannone will be Zarco. There are now five riders within eight points at the top of the title fight - with Marquez a point off the top after his win, and Maverick Vinales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) moving up to third after a second place finish at COTA.
Marquez explained that he was concerned about having Iannone follow him on his flying lap, given the Suzuki rider had been quick throughout the weekend. Marc Marquez was at his ruthless best, as he was leading Vinales by over seven seconds and crossed the chequered flag effortlessly.
Vinales was on a quick lap and set to challenge Marquez's provisional pole benchmark when he came up on the Honda rider in the final sector and was forced to back out, gesticulating angrily at Marquez as he rode past. "I think tomorrow we can be fighting hard for the race".

Cal Crutchlow, who arrived in Austin atop the standings after his win in Argentina, crashed out on lap 13.
That puts Marquez on the next row along with Yamaha's Valentino Rossi, who was fifth on 2:04.229.
Dani Pedrosa gritted his teeth to claim seventh despite his wrist injury, while Avintia's Tito Rabat held Ducati stablemate Jack Miller and Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro to secure eighth, while Jorge Lorenzo was cast a distant 11th. The penalty was a result of blocking Pol Espargaro during qualifying.
Bradley Smith brought home his KTM in 16th ahead of Scott Redding and Tom Luthi, while Crutchlow clawed his way up to 19th ahead of Xavier Simeon and Franco Morbidelli - the only other finishers - despite a time penalty for cutting the circuit late in the race.
