With four world championships from 90 starts, Spaniard Marc Marquez (25) has signed with Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) for two more years to compete in the FIM MotoGP World Championship. Riding for HRC factory team Repsol Honda, the new contract takes effect in 2019.

As the youngest rider ever to win four titles in the top flight, Marquez won the MotoGP twice two years consecutively in 2016 and 2017, as well as in 2013 and 2014. This is on top of winning the Moto2 championship in 2012, and the 125 cc class – before it became Moto3 with 250 cc four-strokes in 2012 – in 2010.

Marquez’ career progression has seen him climb the podium 35 times as race winner, 19 times in second place and nine times in third. During his MotoGP career he garnered 45 pole positions and clocked 37 fastest race laps as well as being the youngest MotoGP champion ever after winning the 2013 season.

“I’m excited to continue to race for Honda’s factory team in the MotoGP class. I’m proud to race as a member of the Honda family, and I appreciate how Honda and the team always do their best to provide me with everything I need,” said Marquez.
