0 1

Six-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez has confirmed that he is ending his 11-year relationship with Repsol Honda Team at the end of the 2023 season, reported Xinhua.

The Spaniard's contract was due to expire at the end of 2024, but the rider and his team have reached a "mutual" agreement to part ways one year ahead of schedule.

"We have shared some unforgettable moments: 6 World Championships, 5 Triple Crowns, 59 wins, 101 podiums and 64 poles. Laughs, tears, happiness and difficult moments, but the most important is that it has been a unique and unrepeatable relationship," said Marquez on social media.

"With a year still remaining on the four-year contract between HRC and Marc Marquez, both parties have mutually agreed to end their collaboration upon completion of the 2023 MotoGP World Championship season. Both parties agreed it was in their best interests to each pursue other avenues in the future to best achieve their respective goals and targets," read a communique from the Repsol Honda Team.

"Marquez took his debut victory in the premier class aboard the Honda RC213V at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas in 2013 to become the youngest premier class winner and would become the youngest premier class World Champion later that year. In 2014 he defended his title and won the opening 10 consecutive races of year, going on to also claim titles in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 as an HRC rider with the Repsol Honda Team," the team added.
