The team come into the penultimate round of the season leading the team and constructors standings, with a 16 and 39 point lead, respectively.

The Repsol Honda team riders have achieved four victories in the last six editions of the Malaysian Grand Prix, Márquez in 2014.

Marc Márquez: “We had quite an eventful race in Australia and it was a pity we couldn’t fight until the end, but that’s gone now and we look forward to the next round in Malaysia with our usual spirit and positive mentality. We still have our target of two more titles to achieve, and we also want to try and win again if we have the chance to do so.

Malaysia is a demanding round from a physical point of view but that’s something we’re prepared to deal with, so we’ll keep our concentration high and try to start strong beginning on Friday morning.”
