- Already assured of his second successive world title, Marc Marquez targets a record 13th win in one season when the 2014 campaign ends in Valencia on Sunday.

Marquez wrapped up the MotoGP crown in Japan in October while his victory in Malaysia last time out equalled Australian rider Mick Doohan's mark of 12 wins in the 1997 season.

"The past month has been a whirlwind and winning the championship in Japan seems like a long time ago now," said Marquez.

"Now we head to Valencia for the final race of an incredible season. It’s always nice to race in front of the home fans and this year... I will be able to enjoy it without any pressure."
