Marquez Matches Rossi in Number of Poles | MotoGP | Sport

Marc Marquez continues to break records as his remarkable career matures … and not only for surviving the greatest number of crashes.

His pole position for tomorrow’s French GP was his 55th. This puts him equal with Valentino Rossi in modern-era racing; and just three behind Mick Doohan’s record of 58.

Should he win tomorrow, this would bring his premier-class total to 47, putting him equal fourth overall with Jorge Lorenzo. Ahead of him: Valentino Rossi (89), Giacomo Agostini (68) and Doohan (54).
