Record-Breaking Marc Marquez wins his second consectutive Moto GP Championship

Marc Marquez has won his second Moto GP championship in-a-row after finishing second in the Japanese Grand Prix.

The result meant that Marquez could no longer be caught by his nearest rivals: Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa.

His championship win means that the 21-year-old has now won four world titles in five seasons across the three categories in the sport. He won the 125cc championship in 2010, the Moto 2 championship in 2012 and the Moto GP championship last season.

Marquez has dominated Moto GP in 2014 and has broken even more records in the process:

  • Marquez is now the youngest ever rider to win two consecutive premier class world championships, taking the record away from Mike Hailwood, who was 23-years-old when he won his second title in 1963.
  • Marquez is the first Spanish rider to win back-to-back titles in the premier class of Grand Prix racing.
  • Marquez became the first rider to win 10 successive races in the Moto GP class.
  • He also became the youngest rider to do so, once again breaking Hailwood’s record.
  • Marquez is the first Honda rider to win the title at Honda’s home track, Motegi.

Marquez still has three more races to earn the record number of podiums in a single season. He currently has 11 podiums, which has equalled the record set by Rossi in both 2002 and 2005.

Wheels And Goals would like to congratulate Marquez for another great season in Moto GP! He is going to take some beating in the years to come!

 

Can anybody step-up in 2015 and take the fight to Marquez? Let me know your thoughts!
