Marc Marquez has a bad tradition every time he wins the MotoGP world championship. One of the most sticking memories of fans is that the Repsol Honda racer always fails to finish the race in the next series or right after locking up the championship title.
What happened was not a myth and Marquez apparently believed in the superstition. In a Spanish television program, El Hormiguero, he said failure to win races after locking the title always happened and it was not superstition.
Last year for example. Marquez failed to finish the race in Australia after winning the fifth MotoGP world title in Japan.
“No, it’s not superstition. It happens every time I win a championship. Usually I have won it in Valencia or Japan. When I was in Japan, my next race in Australia fell,” Marquez was quoted as saying by AS Sport on Thursday (10/10 / 2019).
“We will try to change that tradition. Even though I didn’t fall last year. They touched my motorcycle and I failed to finish the race,” Marquez added.
