Marc Marquez has called time on his career. Official announcement will be made in the next few days but for now we say adios to the extremely talented Spanish rider.

The Spanish Repsol Honda rider took a heavy blow to his head in 2011 which threatened to end his career. As a result of that crash he was diagnosed with a condition known as Diplopia. It has been the cause of crashes, the most recent following his warm-up crash at the Indonesian GP.

That was the second crash in five months, and many saw an inevitable retirement from an already dangerous sport.

Number 93 has chosen to put an end to his career on his terms even if he is able to recover from diplopia.

It was not a matter of fearing a failed recovery but that the diplopia episodes would become more and more frequent. When riding a racing GP bike at extreme speeds and in close proximity to other riders it is playing Russian roulette with his life and the lives of those other riders who may be impacted by an out of control crash.

Marquez began his career in 2008 in the 125cc class and won eight world titles – six of them in MotoGP. He won four consecutively between 2016 and 2019.

He completed his entire top class career with the Repsol Honda Team and is one of the few riders with multiple title wins.

Marcs brother Alex, said his brother was quite depressed after the Indonesian crash which was exacerbated when he began to experience double vision and a new episode of diplopia.

No decision has been made on his future at this point but more information is expected over the next few days when the official announcement is made
