Marc Márquez does not leave the crumbs

It was enough for the Spaniard not to fall, but he risked in the last lap, beat Quartararo and finished the MotoGP World Cup in a big way, with a victory.


Marc Marquez suffered a fall on Friday, in the free. He also rolled on the ground on Saturday, in the standings. And this Sunday it was enough for him not to fall, practically, to proclaim himself champion again. The ilerdense might not have risked, because he didn't need to expose himself. If he scored two points more than Andrea Dovizioso, the eighth title went to the bag. And the Italian was behind from the start, away from the bid for the crown and the grand prize. The race was played with Fabio Quartararo, a wonderful 20-year-old driver who has not yet released a victory, but has shown that he is very fast, as confirmed by the four poles he adds in this championship. Márquez risked in the last lap, beat the Frenchman and finished the World Cup in a big way, with a victory in Thailand, in the absence of four prizes. Buriram translates as the City of Happiness. A good place for your eighth joy in a World Cup, the sixth in MotoGP.

Marquez did nothing new either. In fact it was almost a carbon copy of last year, when he won the Japanese Grand Prix to be crowned champion, in the absence of three races and one day after having fallen in the classification. Similar ingredients for similar cooking. The great champions are like that. They don't even leave the crumbs.

Marc is the best driver at his age, 26, as he was before with 25. His voracity makes him climb the stairs to pairs. With his sixth MotoGP title he has already surpassed Mick Doohan, another Honda icon in the top category, who retired with five 500cc World Cups in his medal list, and only sees Valentino Rossi ahead, with seven, and Giacomo Agostini, with eight. Legend names in motorcycling. Marc Márquez is too. A living legend.
