"I'm very happy to announce this renewal with HRC, especially coinciding with Grand Prix of Catalunya, my home GP, where I have some really good memories," said Marquez. "HRC and I have a very strong relationship, and I've always wanted to continue being a part of the Repsol Honda Team. In three and a half years together, we've enjoyed some unbelievable moments, with great victories and two world titles, as well as a few challenging moments that I believe are making us stronger. We're working very hard this year to regain the title. It's a great honor to be a part of the Honda family, and I'm glad to remain with this special group of people for another two seasons."
