Marc Marquez for the eighth time world champion

Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha) led almost the entire race. Only in the last round Marquez passed him. However, Quartararo did not shake off and started to overtake in the last corner. Since he could not keep the line countered Marc Marquez and won the race.

Third place went to Maverick Vinales (Yamaha)

The second place would have been enough for Marquez, as Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati), the only one with theoretical chances for the title, finished fourth. Marquez only had to score two points more than Dovi for the World Championship.

In the season so far, Marquez scored nine victories, 14 podiums and nine pole positions with the Honda RC213V.

The Honda rider is now the youngest six-time Premier Class World Champion (MotoGP) with a precise age of 26 and 231 days. He is also the youngest eight-time World Champion (a title in the 125cc, a title in Moto2 and now six in MotoGP).

Six titles in the premier class have so far entered only Giacomo Agostini (8) and Valentino Rossi (7).

Expanded to all classes, he is now one of only six riders to win eight or more World Championships.

Carlo Ubbiali – 9, Mike Hailwood – 9, Valentino Rossi – 9, Angel Nieto – 12 + 1, Giacomo Agostini – 15

All titles picked Marquez with Honda. Since 2002, he has won 17% of all races in which he participated.
