This man, here, this Marc Marques fella, is looking to be the King for another four years at least... do you think everyone else in the MotoGP paddock is just that little bit more worried about their seasons to come, now?

The eight-time world champion rider has signed a four-year extension of his contract.

It’s been confirmed today that Marc Marquez will continue to race with the Honda MotoGP factory team until at least December 2024. So far, the reigning Champion in the Premier League class has claimed 56 victories, 95 podiums and 62 pole positions with his RC213V Honda race bike.

Marquez said: “I am very proud to announce my renewal with Honda Racing Corporation for the next four years. Honda gave me the opportunity to arrive in the MotoGP class with a factory bike in 2013. Since the first year we have achieved success together and I am very happy to continue being part of the Honda family. HRC gives me the confidence to extend this partnership to obtain our common goal and continue our story of success.”

Yoshishige Nomura (HRC President) added: “We are happy to announce that, after the end of the current season, Marc will stay in the Honda family for four more years. We started talking a few months ago, as both parties wanted to stay together and continue winning. Marc started his career in the premier class in 2013 and with him we have won six of the last seven MotoGP titles. As a unique champion, he deserves a unique deal. I am very confident in this partnership and I wish everyone involved continued success.”
