First chance to seal title for Marc in Malaysia

Marc Márquez takes on penultimate round of the season, a race in which Repsol Honda rider can clinch his sixth World Championship.

At Sepang, Marc will mathematically seal the MotoGP title if he wins the race or finishes second, regardless of whether Andrea Dovizioso wins.

Marc Márquez: “Of course we’re happy to go to Malaysia, having won at Phillip Island. I knew it was very important to get a good result in Australia and try to open a bit of a gap before Sepang, which is a demanding round, and where Dovi won last season.

One of the main things there is the humidity, and of course the high temperatures. I think it’s one of the most difficult races in terms of the physical conditions. One good thing is that the tarmac is good now, as it was resurfaced not long ago. The grip is also nice. We’ll see what the situation is, and we’ll try to manage it the best for the Championship.”
