After the usual Summer break, MotoGP riders will be back in action during this weekend for the Czech GP, at the tricky Brno circuit. But this weekend will be very special to Marc Marquez, all because the four-times MotoGP champion will be racing for the 100th time in the top class of motorcycle racing.
Since his debut in 2013, Marquez has secured an impressive record: 40 victories (40,8% win ratio), finished on the podium 70 times (70,7% podiums ratio), managed to start from pole position 48 times (48,4% ratio) and scored a total of 1699 points in his MotoGP stint.
Arriving at Brno with a 46-point advantage over his closest rival Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez will have the chance to continue his winning streak in a track where he already has two victories in MotoGP (2013 and 2017) and a victory in Moto2 (2012).
With 10 races to go until the end of the season, Marquez has a comfortable lead in the championship standings, but the Spanish rider from Cervera acknowledges that Honda rivals have worked well and are now a danger in all situations and on all racetracks
“Our rivals are now fast on all situations and on all racetracks, so we need to find the best strategy for each moment. We’ve worked well with the team and HRC engineers, so we need to continue with this plan. I’m arriving at Brno without thinking about the advantage I have in the championship, it’ll be like if we are in the beginning of the season with zero points. The objective will be to win, but if we can’t, then we will make the best of the situation”, says Marc Marquez before travelling to Brno.
