Marquez racks up premier class points record in Sepang

2019 Champion surpasses Lorenzo’s former record thanks to a P2 finish in Malaysia

Despite starting from his lowest grid position since Mugello 2015 - due to a huge Turn 2 highside in qualifying - 2019 World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) notched up another MotoGP™ record as he surpassed Jorge Lorenzo’s premier class points record of 383, thanks to a P2 finish at the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix.

It was yet another stunning performance from the eight-time Champion, who now moves onto 395 points in 2019. Every time Marquez has finished a race this season, it’s been in the top two. 18 races completed, 17 podiums, 11 of them wins and just one DNF. 2019 has been pretty much the complete season for the number 93 as he now sits 139 points ahead of nearest rival Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) in the overall standings.

Will Marquez finish the season with a bang on home soil and reach 420 points? You’d be a brave person to bet against him in Valencia and if you think there’s nothing to play for – you’re wrong. Just two points separate Repsol Honda Team from Ducati Team in the overall standings, the Japanese manufacturer with a slight deficit as Marquez gears up for one last 2019 assault.
