The reigning MotoGP™ World Champion Marc Marquez already has quite a few records to his name, but in Austin…he added some more.
With his win at the Grand Prix of the Americas, Marc Marquez continues to set new milestones in his grand prix career:
The win in Austin was his sixth MotoGP victory in the USA, continuing his sequence of winning every race that he has started in America in the MotoGP class.
- It was the third successive year that he has won at the Grand Prix of The Americas from pole position.
- This was the 20th MotoGP win for Marquez – the same number of premier-class grand prix wins as twice 500cc world champion Freddie Spencer.
- It was the 31st time that Marquez has stood on the podium in the MotoGP class, which is the same number of premier-class podium finishes that Freddie Spencer achieved during his career.
- This was the 46th career grand prix win for Marquez across all classes, making him the ninth most winning rider in grand prix history, with one more GP victory that six-times world champion Jim Redman.
- The win for Marquez in Austin was his 31st podium in MotoGP class, one more than Max Biaggi achieved during his time competing in MotoGP after it was introduced to replacing the 500cc class in 2002. Marquez is now fifth in the list of riders with most MotoGP podium finishes after Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner.
