Honda’s Marc Marquez gets his first chance to seal this year’s MotoGP world championship on Sunday in Japan.

The two-time world champion from Spain has built a 52-point gap over his closest rival Valentino Rossi, and would claim the season trophy if he wins and if the Italian legend finishes 15th or lower on his Yamaha and his third-placed teammate Jorge Lorenzo is fourth or worse.

But Marquez has never won at the Motegi circuit, known for its hard braking and acceleration. With 100 points still up for grabs, the championship race could extend to one the other legs in the Asian “triple-header” — Australia and Malaysia.
