Marquez eyes Lorenzo’s points record in Sepang

After 17 races so far in 2019, Marquez has managed to total 375 – eight off now-teammate Lorenzo’s number from nine years ago.
So, in order to surpass the 18-race record, all Marquez has to do is finish P7 or higher, something he hasn’t done in a ‘normal’ race for his entire premier class career.
“No, I never changed the strategy even when I was fighting for the Championship,” said Marquez, in response to a question about the points record.
Marquez: “It’s true I can score the most points over 18 races but it’s a record we will remember if somebody gets it again, so I don’t care about this record.”
