Honda Racing Corporation is pleased to announce the renewal of the contract with 2013 World Champion, Marc Marquez, for a further two years.
The young Spaniard took the MotoGP World by storm winning the Championship in his rookie season last year. It was a priority for HRC to re-sign the young sensation who has won every race so far this season - all from pole position. Since joining the Factory outfit - the Repsol Honda Team - Marc has finished on the podium in all but two of his twenty-two MotoGP races. He has taken ten victories, six second's and four third's. He has also accumulated thirteen pole positions in the premier class.
He arrives at this weekend's French GP leading the Rider's Championship by 28 points after just four rounds.
