Marc Márquez has enjoyed spectacular races in Australia in 2011, 2015 and 2017, although he suffered crashes there in 2014 and 2016 -after having been crowned World Champion in the previous race at Motegi.

The MotoGP World Champion has taken four consecutive pole positions on his last four visits to Australia.

Since his crash at the Italian Grand Prix earlier this year, Márquez has claimed 9 consecutive podiums, of which five have been victories –the last three at consecutive races.

Dani Pedrosa was proclaimed 250cc World Champion at Phillip Island in 2004 and in 2005, and in MotoGP he has taken to the podium there in 2009 and 2013.

Australian GP  2018 – Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa


It’s a great feeling to arrive in Australia with the title already won, and I really look forward to enjoying the end of the season. Of course there are also the Constructors and the Teams’ titles to think of, so 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.

I love Phillip Island; it’s a fast track that always favours race-long battles that are a great show for the fans. I just hope the weather will be good because it can change from sunny and warm to cold and windy in a matter of hours. Anyway, we’ll see; we’ll definitely try to be at the front and have fun.


Phillip Island isn’t one of my favourite tracks, though we’ve also been able to get some good results there in the past. More recently, though, we’ve struggled to find the best setup.

That said, we’ll go to Australia and manage it as well as possible. Let’s hope to find good weather and to be able to use every session well in order to prepare for the race.
