Marc Marquez Age – Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi are in Australia. A few days ago, the Honda pilot became the new MotoGP world champion. Now, Vale has nine Titles and Marc five. However, what would this duel if both riders had the same age? A little game made by As.com. Some days before the new challenge on track at Phillip Island. Today we want to do a comparison between Rossi Age and Marc Marquez Age. When the Italian champion was 23 years old such as the Spaniard pilot.
23 years, 7 months and 28 days, last Sunday Marc Marquez with these numbers won his new World Title in the premier class. He won the Japan Grand Prix and saw his rivals Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi fall one after another.
Marc Marquez Golden Age
At this point in his career, Marc Marquez, born in Cervera, Lleida, 2/17/1993, has five titles, 55 GP victories, 20 second places, 14 third, 89 podiums and 64 pole positions. While Rossi, Urbino, 2/16/1979, at the same age of Marquez had four titles, 49 victories, 13 second places. And 10 third places, 72 podiums and 21 pole positions.
However, these numbers must be seen in relation to rivals on the track. Between 20 and 23 years old, Rossi rode against Kenny Roberts Junior, Biaggi, Barros, Capirossi and Ukawa. While Marquez rode against Rossi, Lorenzo and Pedrosa.
Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi, two different generations
In 2016, Marc runs its ninth season. Four in MotoGP with three Titles, three years in the 125cc (2008, 2009 and 2010) and two in the Moto2 class (2011 and 2012). In 2002, for Valentino was the seventh season. Three in the top class, after two years in 125 (1996 and 1997) and two in 250cc (1998 and 1999). Numbers that do nothing to approve the greatness of both. Two genes with piloting and a way of being that does not leave anyone indifferent.
Pilots with more MotoGP victories at Phillip Island are two. Casey Stoner, now retired from racing, won six times continuously from 2007 to 2012. While Valentino Rossi won five consecutive times from 2001 to 2005. Then the Italian champion won again in 2014. Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez moved up once on the top step of the podium. Respectively in 2013 and in 2015.
