This weekend is Marquez’ first chance to take the MotoGP title, as Dovizioso and Rossi will fight to stretch the championship another race. Last weekend, we witnessed a thrilling race, in which Marquez triumphed, placing one hand on the MotoGP Championship for the 2018 season.
Marquez currently leads the championship standings by 77 points, from Dovizioso in 2nd and Rossi in 3rd. After Lorenzo crashed and injured himself during practice, he will return this weekend at the #JapaneseGP.
This weekend’s #JapaneseGP is to be a weekend of excitement. Who will triumph; 2018 leader Marquez, 2017 race winner Dovizioso, previous race winner Lorenzo, or will someone else steal the spotlight under the Japanese sun?
