2013 MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPION
At the opening race of 2013 in Qatar Marquez became the fourth youngest rider of all-time to finish on the podium in the premier-class of Grand Prix racing after Randy Mamola, Eduardo Salatino and Norick Abe.
His first MotoGP win at the Grand Prix of Americas at the age of just 20 years 63 days, made him the youngest ever rider to win a premier-class Grand Prix, taking the record from Freddie Spencer who was 20 years 196 days when he won the Belgium 500cc GP at Spa-Francorchamps in 1982.
The victory in Austin also made Marquez the youngest ever rider in the 65 year history of World Championship Grand Prix racing to have won in three different classes, taking the record from his team-mate Dani Pedrosa who achieved this at the age of 20 years 227 days when he won in China in 2006.
