Last night, Marc Marquez returned to his home town Cervera in Spain for his traditional celebration ceremony of his fifth MotoGP world title in six years.
A week after the Malaysian Grand Prix, the last of the triple head flyaways where Marquez won his ninth race of the season, he spent his time celebrating the 2018 World Championship he won in Motegi, Japan.
Marquez also helped Honda win the Constructors’ title, along with teammate Dani Pedrosa in Sepang, scoring their 24th title in MotoGP.
Reflecting on the season so far Marquez said: "It has been a very long season, but we ultimately achieved our target and now it’s time to enjoy the feeling with my team, family and friends.
The big party comes just a week before the final race in Valencia but Marquez is still focused on bagging the Triple Crown for his team at the end of the season: “This weekend we’ll have a big party in my hometown, Cervera. Obviously, we still have the final race in Valencia to think about in two weeks, and our main goal there will be to achieve the Triple Crown by taking the Team Title in front of our fans.
“We know it won’t be easy but we’ll stay focused on the target until the very end. I’m also looking forward to testing the new bike on Tuesday after the race in Valencia, as we’re already thinking about having the best bike for 2019."
The Repsol Honda Team are currently 39 points ahead of Yamaha Factory Racing in the team championship going into the final round of the 2018 season.
