Marc Marquez has a hand on the 2019 MotoGP championship title

The 2019 MotoGP season resumed after the summer break with a three-race set, each of which was quite remarkable. The first, at Brno, for showcasing (as if there was any further need) the quite extraordinary gifts of Marc Marquez. He laid on a single qualifying lap of such bravura brinkmanship as to take the breath away. On slick tyres in mixed wet-and-dry conditions he slithered round the fine long Czech circuit a full 2.5 seconds better than the best of the rest. The subject later of admiring admonition from his factory Repsol Honda team, given that he was already on pole position and had a massive championship lead to respect, he admitted: “It was a bit too risky. But that is my character.”
