Flawless victory for Márquez in Aragón

The Repsol Honda Team rider earns his eighth win of the season, after comfortably leading the entire Aragón GP.

Marc Márquez has led the Aragón GP from start to finish: He grabbed the holeshot, established a gap of more than a second on the opening lap, and extended his lead to more than six seconds.

With this win, the reigning MotoGP World Champion increases his advantage in the overall standings to 98 points and goes into the next round in Thailand with his first chance to clinch the 2019 title.

Marc Márquez:

I was convinced about my strategy and what I had to do. I had a good feeling from when I left the box, so I knew I could push in the beginning and open a gap of four or five seconds and just keep it there, not pushing too much. I saw at one stage of the race that Viñales closed in a little, so I pushed a little more for two or three laps and I stabilised the advantage. It looked easy but it wasn’t, we have been working hard all weekend to find the limit. It was amazing to win here in front of our home fans so I have to say thank you to them all!
