Following his dominant victory at the Argon MotoGP last time out, Marc Marquez will look to take another step toward securing the 2019 MotoGP championship title.Marquez could win his sixth MotoGP title and his eighth world world title this weekend by winning outright or by finishing second while Andrea Dovizioso finishes third or lower. Marquez defeated Dovizioso in this event a year ago and he won last weekend a well and many consider him the second greatest Moto GP cyclist of all-time.
The Repsol Honda rider came back from a huge crash in the morning qualifiy session this week that sent him to hospital for but when he returned, he ran more laps than any othe rider before securing a safe sixth-placed route through Q2. Fabio Quartararo is looking good as a +600 pick after taking the top spot with a stunning time that was less than four tenths off the track record, at 1m 30.404.

Who’s the Top Favorite to Win?
Marquez has now won at least eight GP races in five different years– matching the same history-making feat produced by Angel Nieto and Giacomo Agostini – with only Valentino Rossi topping the feat by accomplishing the feat in eight different campaigns. Over his last 23 races, Marquez has always managed to reach the podium with a stellar 14 wins, nine second place finishes and one third place finish. Marquez was thrown off his bike at the Turn 7 right-hander during a late out-lap in FP1 and was clearly shaken up by the spill. He eventually limped towards the circuit ambulance which took him to the on-track medical center.
“Was around five seconds that I couldn’t breath,” Marquez said of the immediate aftermatch of his crash. “For that reason I was there on the floor, on the gravel. It is only five seconds but for me was like 20 seconds.”
Despite the crash, Marquez ended FP1 in third, narrowly ahead of the two Ducatis of Andrea Dovizioso and Jack Miller. The 4.55 km track at Thailand features numerous long straights that will allow a handful of riders to challegne Marquez for the win. Honda, Ducati and KTM will look to dominate these stretches with higher horsepower and top speed while the superior cornering and handling of the Yamaha and Suzuki packages is catered for in the twisty middle section.
Who Should You Keep an Eye Out For?
Other riders garnering my most serious consideration to win in Thailand are Maverick Vinales, Petronas teammate Franco Morbidelli, Jack Miller, Valentino Rossi and Alex Espargaro. Fabio Quartararo is looking good as a +600 pick after taking the top spot with a stunning time that was less than four tenths off the track record, at 1m 30.404.
