Super-Mark Markez! The Honda Spaniard won his eighth career championship and sixth in the Moto GP yesterday, following the success of the Thai Grand Prix, where he placed Fabio Quartararo in superb form on the final lap. The 26-year-old thus closes the championship account four races before the end.
Maverik Vinjales with the official Yamahan also climbed to the podium while raising Andrea Doviciozo’s white flag, ranking fourth. Valentino Rossi recorded the next disappointment, unable to go beyond eighth.
The title was only a matter of time, but Marquez wastes nothing by using the “match point” to crown a season dominated in every respect. 9 wins, 4 second places in 15 races speak clearly of the tremendous superiority the Spaniard has achieved in this season over rivals, with an engine like never before seen in this edition built to perfection.
Even in Buriram Marquez there is no compassion for anyone by forcibly breaking the all-time dominant Fabio Quartararo. With this success, Marquez equates Rosie with 6 titles in the Moto GP, while it is only one step away from him in all category titles, with Rosi leading with 9. Doviciozo tried to postpone his rival’s celebration, but for the third consecutive year. is bound to succumb to the Marquez phenomenon.
In yesterday’s race Ducati’s Italian initially made the impression he would be able to compete, but could not go further than fourth place. If Marquez is captivating every year more and more, with the other Honda pilot, Horge Lorenzo, the opposite is happening. The Spaniard was still in poor form yesterday and was ranked 18th, almost a minute behind his colleague.
