Win for Márquez and Triple Crown for Repsol Honda in Lorenzo’s farewell GP

Win for Márquez and Triple Crown for Repsol Honda in Lorenzo’s farewell GP

The 2019 MotoGP World Champion takes his twelfth win of the season, whilst Jorge Lorenzo ends his final Grand Prix in thirteenth

 

Marc Márquez closed the season with another victory, completing a practically perfect year in which he took twelve wins and six second positions.

It was his eighteenth podium of the year, a record for a single season (exceeding the 16 for Rossi in 2003 and 2008, Stoner in 2011, Lorenzo in 2010 and 2012 and Márquez himself in 2013). He now holds the record for points in a single campaign, with 420 (surpassing Lorenzo’s 383 from 2010).

The Repsol Honda Team rider broke the race track record on Lap 4 today.

Jorge Lorenzo said goodbye to the MotoGP World Championship with a fightback from eighteenth position to thirteenth at the chequered flag.

The results for Márquez and Lorenzo allow Repsol Honda to win the team title for a third consecutive season. It is the tenth for the outfit in the 18 seasons since the award was created (2002, 2003, 2006, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, and 2019).
