Biography

Three MotoGP™ titles in four seasons says it all – this man is a freak. After 2015 brought the phenomenon back to earth, in 2016 he was both fast and consistent – a mix that is lethal in the hands of such a talented rider. Marquez unexpectedly wrapped up the 2016 title at the fourth last round in Japan after both Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo crashed out, with the Spaniard revelling in his good fortune. The superstar not only produces pyrotechnics in races, but some of his one-lap qualifying efforts are just sublime to watch for the sheer entertainment value in the way he can squeeze the maximum out of his factory Honda. Like all the Honda riders, he's been delivered a new engine in 2017, and early indications are that it is a big improvement. Marquez's most brilliant body of work probably remains 2014, when he produced 10 straight wins from Qatar to Indianapolis, as well as 13 pole positions and 12 fastest laps. Marquez probably won't produce such a brilliant season again, but there's no doubt he's got plenty of winning left to do, adding to his 29 successes so far in just four seasons.
