How have the previous all-Champion MotoGP™ pairings fared?

Marc Marquez and Joan Mir have been officially launched as Repsol Honda’s 2023 riders during their Team Presentation in Madrid on Wednesday. The 2006 and 2007 MotoGP™ World Champions became the first teammates to both hold a premier class title since the MotoGP™ era began in 2002. Furthermore, the pair were reunited as teammates with Hayden now a World Champion himself thanks to his 2006 title. Lorenzo would go on to take the title, his third premier class crown, but, by the time he left for Ducati at the end of 2016, it was honours even after pair had finished above eachother in the Championship standings on two occasions each. Jorge Lorenzo jumped from Ducati to Honda and, as a result, linked up with Marc Marquez for the first time ahead of the 2019 MotoGP™ World Championship.
