Nearly seven years Marc Marquez provided exciting entertainment for connoisseurs of MotoGP racing around the world. His popularity has skyrocketed as he successfully won the title for the Repsol Honda team.
So far Marquez has collected five MotoGP world titles (2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018). This year the racer nicknamed The Baby Alien stayed at his fingertips to underline his name as the 2019 MotoGP world champion.
So far Marquez has collected 300 points and he is 98 points ahead of Andrea Dovizioso. Eight wins and five times in second place in the 14 races that have traveled is a phenomenal record of drivers from Cervera, Spain.
In calculating the points Marquez has collected this season, it could be said to be his best year compared to the previous three seasons. In 2016 and 2017, Marquez only collected overall points (298).
Last year, Marquez managed to fix it with 321 numbers. That is, he can pass the record last season considering there are still five races left this season. Whether the MotoGP 2019 was the best season ever that the owner of number 93 felt?
Marquez replied: “In terms of numbers, 2014 might be better and more consistent. But above all, I also had to consider class, team level, motorbike, and racer. That is why it is very important to be fast every weekend,” Marquez said quoted by Speedweek, Thursday (3/10/2019).
For your information, in 2014, Marquez came out as the MotoGP world champion after collecting 362 points. With the details of the first 13 podiums and once in the second position. The rest ranks 4, 15, and 13.
Now Marquez has arrived in Thailand to undergo a series of 15 race at the Chang International Circuit, this weekend. He also hopes to maintain his status as the defending champion while closing the hunt for the 2019 MotoGP world title.
“What we are doing is what we plan to do: attack on the track where I feel strong and defend well where I have problems. We “have a good result here (Buriram) and we are trying to change it. If not, one of my goals is to go to the podium in all races from now until the end of the season,” concluded Marquez.
