Márquez to celebrate title at home of Honda

This weekend will be the first time that Marc Márquez arrives at the Japanese Grand Prix having already mathematically clinched the World Championship, and with four rounds still remaining.

The Repsol Honda Team rider has achieved four victories at Motegi: Last season and in 2016 in MotoGP; in 2012 in Moto2 and in 2010 in 125cc. He also has a further four podiums there.

Jorge Lorenzo, who will compete in his 200th race in MotoGP next Sunday, has been on the rostrum seven times in Japan, three of which have been wins in the premier class (in 2009, 2013 and 2014).

2019 Japan GP – Rider statements


It is a special feeling to bring the World Championship home to Honda. In previous years I have been able to win the title there, but now I will be able to visit all of the people in Honda and HRC who helped make 2019 possible behind the scenes.

Now it is the time to push for the other titles, there is still the Constructor and Team titles to help Honda win. I am looking forward to racing in Motegi because it is Honda’s home race and the Japanese fans are very special.


We head to Japan looking for more after two difficult weekends. Myself and the team have some ideas to try for the bike in Motegi which will hopefully allow us to get back to where we need to be. I have some good memories at the track and it will be special to race in front of the Japanese crowd for the first time as a Honda rider.
