Reigning champion fourth-ever rider to do so in rain-affected Czech GP.
– In doing so, he becomes the fourth-ever rider to reach 50 premier class victories.
– Márquez’ next target is fellow five-time premier class Champion, Michael Doohan, who won 54 Grand Prix in his time – all of which were with Honda.
In terms of overall wins, the reigning World Champion took the 76th of
his career, equalling the late Mike Hailwood. Márquez will soon want to
be challenging his fellow countryman, Angel Nieto, who has 90 overall,
whilst Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini lie ahead after that.
– In Brno, Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) took second place to lead home fellow Ducati man Jack Miller (Pramac Racing), the Australian beating Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Alex Rins in the latter stages to earn his second rostrum of the year.
