Marc Marquez has claimed his sixth MotoGP world title – the fourth in a row – after winning at his latest event in Thailand. The 26 year old, who had been administered to hospital following a crash at the Chang circuit in Buriram, sealed his latest victory with another four races to spare. The Spanish rider had to win at least two more points than closest rival Andrea Dovizioso, and did so while the Italian came in fourth place.
Fabio Quartararo took second place, and was followed by Maverick Vinales, who finished in third. Frenchman Quartararo passed Marquez on the second corner during the final lap, but Marquez was ultimately able to retake the lead for his 53rd MotoGP race. Not far behind them was Vinales, who was able to keep up with the leading pair for a number of laps before he dropped to more than three seconds off of the lead by the time the 10th lap had come to an end.
Talking to reporters, the Spaniard said that he was planning to win during the weekend, and to not think about the championship, adding that his target was to find the best way to win the race, which was what he did. He continued, saying that it has been an amazing year, that his team did an amazing job, and that it’s now time to celebrate the title. The next race will be taking place toward the end of October, and will be hosted by Japan.
