The Spanish MotoGP rider Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda) celebrated this Tuesday that he “finally” arrived at the last race of the year, after “a season full of ups and downs, emotions and difficult decisions”, although he acknowledged that “it is not just any ending , because an incredible chapter” of his sporting career closes.

“Finally, we have reached the end of the year. It has been a season full of ups and downs, emotions and difficult decisions. We arrived in Valencia wanting to finish the World Championship in the best possible way; it is a circuit that I like and in which I have good memories,” said the man from Cervera in statements shared by Repsol Honda collected by Europa Press.

Valencia will host the last race of the season and Márquez’s last with Honda after 11 seasons riding the Japanese machine in MotoGP. In 2024, the eight-time world champion will race in Gresini, with Ducati, so Cheste “is not just any season finale.”

“It will be very emotional, because an incredible chapter of my sporting career and my life closes,” he confessed about his “incredible story” with the Japanese, experiencing “good and bad times.” “They’ve helped me become who I am,” she added.

On Sunday, Marc Márquez will close a relationship with a factory with which he has won six MotoGP world titles, on a track where he won the title three times -2010 in 125cc and 2013 and 2017 in MotoGP-. The one from Cervera has seven podiums in Cheste -1 victory in Moto2 and 2 third places, 2 seconds and 2 victories in MotoGP-.

“This weekend will be about celebrating what we have done and enjoying our time together until the last moments. Let’s make every lap count,” he concluded.
