First chance to seal title for Marc Márquez in Malaysia
Repsol Honda riders take on penultimate round of the season, a race in which Márquez can clinch his sixth World Championship.
The Repsol Honda riders have four victories from the last five editions of the Malaysian Grand Prix. Pedrosa won in 2012, 2013 and 2015 and Márquez in 2014.
With his pole position in Australia, Marc Márquez has 44 poles from the 88 races he has contested in MotoGP, a 50% success rate since he has come into the premier class.
Marc Márquez will mathematically seal the MotoGP title if he wins the race or finishes second, regardless of whether Andrea Dovizioso wins.
