Marc Marquez in record hunt at Spanish MotoGP

The Spanish rookie Marc Marquez has the chance to break more records at the Spanish MotoGP this weekend as the youngest leader of the World Championship.

The 20-year-old Repsol Honda rider became the youngest to win a premier class title at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas, last week. He could become the youngest debutant to achieve three consecutive podiums and to secure back-to-back pole starts and wins.
