Marquez returns to record-breaking form

A record-breaking day kicked off the 2023 MotoGP™ season in fine fashion at the Grande Prémio TISSOT de Portugal, seeing history made in the first-ever Tissot Sprint. This is the second time he has qualified on pole after passing through Q1, along with Thailand in 2018. He will be aiming to win his first Grand Prix race since Emilia-Romagna 2021 (518 days ago). He will be aiming for a second home GP win (along with the 2020 Portuguese GP). He finished P4 in the first-ever Sprint, 0.086s off the podium having earlier led the way. 7- Enea Bastianini qualified sixth, which is the first time he has qualified in the top six since Malaysia last year when he both qualified and finished in second (also his most recent podium). The last time was in Malaysia last year, but he finished third on his most recent podium. He will be aiming to take a Grand Prix win for the first time since Germany last year. He finished P3 last year in Portugal for his fourth MotoGP™ podium at that time.
