HRC was delighted to announce that the Spanish six-time MotoGP world champion has signed a four-year extension of his contract and will continue to race with the factory team until at least December 2024.
So far, Marquez has claimed 56 victories, 95 podiums and 62 pole positions with his RC213V in the premier class. These results have established him as the most dominant Honda rider in the premier class.
“We are happy to announce that, after the end of the current season, Marc will stay in the Honda family for four more years,” said HRC president Yoshishige Nomura.
“We started talking a few months ago, as both parties wanted to stay together and continue winning. Marc started his career in the premier class in 2013 and with him we have won six of the last seven MotoGP titles. As a unique champion, he deserves a unique deal. I am very confident in this partnership and I wish everyone involved continued success.”
Marquez said he was proud to continue on as part of the team.
“Honda gave me the opportunity to arrive in the MotoGP class with a factory bike in 2013,” Marquez said.
“Since the first year we have achieved success together and I am very happy to continue being part of the Honda family. HRC gives me the confidence to extend this partnership to obtain our common goal and continue our story of success.”
