Marc Marquez will remain with the Honda MotoGP squad until at least the end of 2024, having signed a lengthy four year extension with the Japanese manufacturer.
The reigning world champion has failed to win just a single premier class title since stepping up to the championship with Honda for the 2013 campaign, with 56 victories and 62 pole positions coming during this period.
Marquez says he is “proud” to continue with HRC for the foreseeable future, with Valentino Rossi’s record seven MotoGP titles well within reach of the Spaniard should he secures the accolade this season.
“I am very proud to announce my renewal with Honda Racing Corporation for the next four years,” said Marquez.
