MotoGP: 5 Riders with the most consecutive race wins
If the 2018 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season is an indicator, MotoGP is a hugely competitive sport with multiple riders eyeing for the top stop on the podium, making it extremely difficult for someone to secure multiple back-to-back wins in the premier class.
However, that hasn't always been the case as in a couple of instances, few riders were a class ahead of their opposition, managing to string together an array of successive victories in the premier class, and ultimately, securing the championship with a comprehensive points tally.
In this article, without further ado, let us look closer at the five MotoGP riders who managed to secure the most consecutive race wins.
Note: This list only features riders who managed to secure the most consecutive wins in the premier class (500cc and the MotoGP class).
#5 Marc Marquez - 10 wins
At number five, it is the 2018 World Champion, Marc Marquez. The Spaniard achieved the feat of ten race wins in a row during the 2014 season, making him the only rider in the MotoGP era to feature on this list.
Driving for the factory Honda team, Marquez started the season in a spectacular fashion with a win in the opening round at Losail Circuit in Qatar. The Spaniard continued his run of form in the following races, managing to secure the top step nine more times before finishing fourth at Brno, despite starting the race from the pole position.
Marquez went on to win three more races that season to claim the championship with a massive tally of 362 points.
So far (2018 season), Marc Marquez has five MotoGP championships to his name in the six seasons that he had participated in. 2015 was the only year when the Spanish rider failed to finish on top at the end of the season.
