Moto GP: Marquez strongly fancied to continue his dominance

Marc Marquez will head into the second half of the 2019 Moto GP as an overwhelming favourite to win his sixth world title in the last seven years.

The Honda rider has a 58 point lead over Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso and it’s difficult to imagine him blowing that advantage over the coming months.

Numerous Moto GP experts have backed Marquez to win another title and their websites are a great place to get Motorcycles betting websites during the rest of the year.

Marquez’s exploits over the past few seasons have put him on course to join riders like John Surtees, Mike Hailwood, Mick Doohan and Valentino Rossi as a Moto GP legend.

After crashing out in the United States back in April, the 26-year-old has won four of the last six races and finished second in the other two.

Marquez bounced back from his US mishap to win the next race in Spain and he believes that result changed the course of the current campaign.

“Until Montmelo (Barcelona) it was one championship, now from Montmelo to here it’s another championship,” Marquez told Autosport. “We have two (wins worth of points) between me and Dovi (Andrea Dovizioso).

“Of course, Ducati will come back stronger and they will be very fast, but at the moment the riders to beat are both Yamahas – (Maverick) Vinales and (Fabio) Quartararo.

“I think they will be the fastest in the second part of the championship.”

With Vinales 100 points behind and Quartararo even further adrift in the title race, Marquez’s comments have a touch of ‘mind games’ about them.

The next two races in the Czech Republic and Austria should favour the Ducatis, meaning Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci could be much closer to Marquez in the championship going into the British GP at the end of August.

However, the technical nature of Silverstone should play to Marquez’s strengths and a strong performance there would set him up nicely for the rest of the season.

Having won four of the final six races during the 2018 campaign, it would be a major shock if the Spaniard didn’t produce something similar this term.

He claimed last season’s title by 76 points from Dovizioso and he could easily secure this year’s crown with a bigger winning margin.
