Marquez and Honda mutually agreed to split after 2023 racing season

The past 4 years have been tough for Marc Marquez and Repsol Honda as they were unable to replicate their championship form from 2019. Now, Marquez and Honda announce that they will be ending their 11-year relationship at the end of the 2023 MotoGP season.

With a year still remaining on the four-year contract between HRC and Marquez, both parties have mutually agreed to end their collaboration upon completion of the 2023 MotoGP 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.

This brings an end to 11 years of collaboration between the #93 and HRC in which they achieved 6 premier class World Championships, 5 Triple Crowns, 59 wins, 101 podiums and 64 pole positions together.

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.

“We have shared unforgettable moments: 6 World Championships, 5 Triple Crowns, 59 victories, 101 podiums and 64 pole positions. Laughter, tears, joy, hard moments but most importantly: a unique and unrepeatable relationship. SEPARATE, BUT ALWAYS TOGETHER!” said Marquez via Instagram.

Both parties will continue to give their full support for the remaining rounds of the 2023 MotoGP World Championship season.
