After clinching the MotoGP™ World Championship in Japan with Marc Marquez, the Repsol Honda Team is chasing a record 24th constructors’ title in Australia.
With a 47-point lead and three races remaining in the season, there is a chance for the company to reach the prestigious achievement at the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix on Sunday.
Marquez has won two of the past three MotoGP™ races at Phillip Island and is looking forward to putting on another show for the Australian GP crowd.
“I love Phillip Island; it’s a fast track that always favours race-long battles that are a great show for the fans,” he said.
“Of course, there are also the constructors’ and the teams’ titles to think of.
“We’ll try to keep the same level of performance and win more races to achieve those goals as well, as they’re important for us and for Honda.”
Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa will also be looking to strike at Phillip Island.
The Spaniard has often struggled at the fast circuit but has achieved two podium finishes in his 13 years in the premier class.
Pedrosa has never finished a MotoGP™ season without a win, with four races remaining for him to maintain that record.
