Marc Márquez is the 2019 MotoGP Champion.

After fifteen rounds of the championship, Marc Márquez successfully defended his Rider's Championship taking his sixth premier class title, having won nine races. Last season's championship runner-up Andrea Dovizioso is in second for Ducati with two wins and Álex Rins on a Suzuki is in third with two wins. Danilo Petrucci and Maverick Viñales with one win are the other race winners, both Rins and Petrucci winning their first races during the season. Márquez secured the Rider's title after winning the Thailand Grand Prix. In spite of Márquez' sizeable championship margin, six races, namely Qatar, Italy, Austria, Britain, San Marino and Thailand were decided with last-lap passes, the season having plenty of close racing.

Rule changesEdit

The season saw the introduction of a new penalty called the "Long Lap" penalty for exceeding track limits or engaging in reckless riding, which, at every circuit, is a route defined and marked at a safe point around the circuit (usually a run-off area outside of a turn). Any rider that receives the penalty must ride through the area within three laps of being notified.
