The 2013 MotoGP season will enter its final round that will take place at Ricardo Tormo circuits, Valencia. In his home race, Marc Marquez the super Rookie from Repsol Honda Team, will be ready to cling the title after leading 13 points ahead of the Reigning double champion, Jorge Lorenzo from Yamaha Factory Racing Team. No doubt, Marquez has a greater chance than Lorenzo to win the title. Even if Lorenzo win the race, Marc just need to finish in fourth place to lock the World Champions Title and also set the record as the youngest World Champions. . . But, according to tmcblog, Marc need to remember the last round of 2006 season in Valencia . . Who remembers what happened in Valencia 2006?
Valentino Rossi from Fiat Yamaha went into the last race by eight points ahead of Nicky Hayden. Rossi, with his talent and experiences was sure the favourite to win the 2006 World Championship title. But we knew what happened when Hayden finished in 3rd place while Rossi finished in 13th place. The title went to Nicky Hayden.
There’s another case where the rider who came to the last race by leading the Championship had to let his rival stole the title. It happened in Kyalami 1992. At 1992, Mick Doohan from (Honda) came to Kyalami circuit, South Africa by 2 points lead from Wyne Rainey. But Doohan only finished in 6th place while Raney finish 3rd and finally Rainey secured the World Champions title with only 4 points above Doohan.
So Marquez, dont forget what happened in Valencia 2006 and Kyalami 1992. . . dont make any mistake, ride well and good luck.
Hope it useful.
