Mick Doohan has sent his congratulations to Marc Marquez after the Spaniard matched his feat of five premier-class world championships, at Motegi on Sunday.

Like Doohan, Marquez has won all his MotoGP titles with Honda machinery.

Only Valentino Rossi (7) and Giacomo Agostini (8) have more 500cc/MotoGP crowns.

“Marc is a brilliant rider and deserves all he has achieved at only 25 years old," said Doohan, who won the 500cc title in consecutive years from 1994-1998.

"He is riding a perfect season, with eight wins to date, combined with his strong consistency that’s put him on the podium at most races.

"I want to congratulate Marc on his fifth MotoGP title. I am proud to share this milestone with him. Thanks Marc for the great show that you make on the track and for your style, which is just inimitable!”
