He hasn't won at the Scarperia track since 2014, but there are signs that the fast may well be brought to an end this time around. In the recent test that took place just two weeks ago, Marc Marquez proved very competitive at the Mugello track and, as if that weren't enough, he has scored three consecutive wins at Austin, Jerez and Le Mans.
His rivals have been warned, #93 has no intention of settling. If he's able to cross the line first come Sunday, it would mark his 65th world championship win, equaling Jorge Lorenzo's tally. Too good an opportunity to miss and the six-time champ is determined to make it count.
In this particular classification, Giacomo Agostini leads the way with 122 wins, seven more than Valentino Rossi, who hasn't won since Assen last year. With his latest Le Mans win, Marquez has now scored the same number of wins in the reigning class as Casey Stoner, or rather 38.
