The six-time premier class champion finished 13th in the MotoGP standings - higher than any other Honda rider despite undergoing a major surgery and missing races as he recovered.

“As a rider on the track, I’m a bastard.

“Us Honda riders are the ones with the least points and the most crashes.”

A new five-part documentary on Amazon Prime, ‘Marc Marquez: ALL IN’, will be released in February 2023 in more than 200 countries.

It shows unseen footage of a tumultuous year where he underwent a fourth major arm operation before a gruelling physical comeback.

“Obviously I’ve thought about retirement,” he admitted.

An emotional Marquez even asks his medical team: “Is it worth it or not?”

He also says: “My first memory is a crash. Your head goes to one place and your body goes to another.

“Happiness for me is winning.”

Marquez offered a reminder of his brilliance by securing a first pole position in three years at the Japanese MotoGP before finishing on the podium in Australia.
