Marc Marquez's plan was clear since the start; the Spaniard planned to run away from his rivals and he was able to do it, despite a big moment in the first lap with Fabio Quartararo. French rookie tried a move in the early stages of the race, but World Champion counter attacked immediately securing first place and Constructor's Title for Honda as well.
Anyway, Marc took a big risk at the end of the Grand Prix with the fuel: "With one lap to go, fuel alarm came to my bike, seven corners after the finish line it was empty! I pushed but not too much to end the race properly, it was fine. My goal was to create a gap since the start from the others and I was able to do it, I am quite happy"
Things would have been different with Fabio Quartararo close to him: "Surely I would have changed my strategy if Fabio was close to me. I tried to open the gap and I did it. With Fabio behind, I would have let him pass in the middle of the race to take benefit from his slipstream".
Marquez secured his World Title in Buriram, but there was still Constructor's one on the line, with Honda President who litteraly asked to Marc to win it in Japan: "My team is working really well this year, we are fast from Friday and this is really important. Anyway, I did not win Constructor's Title by myself, also the other Hondas did their job on securing the Title! This morning the President came to me and said 'I want the Title here!'. Surely he did not make any pressure on me (laughing). Conquering this important achievment here is fantastic!"
