MotoGP™: Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda Team / Michelin) seals 2018 title with Japan win

Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda Team / Michelin) won the Motul Grand Prix of Japan, Round 16 of the 2018 MotoGPTM World Championship, to make sure of his fifth crown in motorcycle racing’s premier series, and his seventh in total. The Spaniard was joined on the Motegi podium by Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda / Michelin) and Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar / Michelin).

 

Despite qualifying sixth on the grid, Marquez got away to a strong start on medium-compound MICHELIN Power Slicks front and rear to complete the first of the afternoon’s 24 laps in second place, behind pole-winner Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team / Michelin). The championship pace-setter defended his position for the first four laps but briefly fell to third spot behind Crutchlow during Laps 5 and 6.

He then managed to close the gap to Dovizioso again and, after an initial attempt to pass on Lap 14, he finally eased into the lead on Lap 21 in the knowledge that victory would put the seal on the 2018 Riders’ title. Two laps later his mission was facilitated when Dovizioso fell.

Second place for Crutchlow produced a one-two finish for Honda on home soil, while Rins ended up third for Suzuki, ahead of Valentino Rossi (4th, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP / Michelin) and Alvaro Bautista (5th, Angel Nieto Team / Michelin).

Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech3 / Michelin) had to settle for sixth after failing to catch the leading pack due to a poor getaway from second on the grid.

Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP / Michelin), Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team / Michelin), Danilo Petrucci (Alma Pramac Racing/ Michelin) and Hafizh Syahrin (Monster Yamaha Tech 3 / Michelin) rounded out the day’s top 10.

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team / Michelin) did not start the race.

Four of the six available Michelin tyre specs were chosen for the grand prix, with only the ‘hard’ front and rear options failing to earn the favours of any of the riders.

At the age of 25 years and 246 days, Márquez is the youngest rider to have won seven motorcycle racing titles, including five at MotoGPTM level in the space of just six years. He joins Mick Doohan, Rossi and Giacomo Agostini as one of only four men to have notched up five crowns or more in the sport’s premier series. The Spaniard also equals Doohan’s record score of titles with the same bike maker (Honda).

With three races still to come, Dovizioso (194 points) is second in the provisional standings, nine points clear of Rossi.

Formula E: The Michelin Pilot Sport: tried and approved in many different conditions

In the course of the first half of the 12-round 2018/2019 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the new Michelin Pilot Sport had to contend with an exceptional variety of conditions, from cold and rainstorms, to extremely hot weather and even sand. It rose to the occasion in style, however, and some of the new-generation racing tyre’s technological bricks have been incorporated into the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV road tyre that was launched at March’s Geneva Show.
