Marc Márquez can get closer to Agostini and Rossi in the record

The Spanish Marc Márquez (Honda), defending champion and five times world champion in the premier category of motorcycling, aspires in the new MotoGP season to get a little closer in the list of honors to the Italians Giacomo Agostini and Valentino Rossi.

Agostini is the man who has been crowned the most times in the top category (500cc and later MotoGP) since the creation of the World Championship in 1949, with eight crowns between 1966 and 1975.

He is followed, with seven, by the veteran Rossi, who is still active, but has not been proclaimed champion since 2009.

Then come Marc Márquez and the Australian Mick Doohan, each with five.
