MADRID (Dispatches) - Marquez, brother of five-time MotoGP champion Marc, leads the Moto2 standings in his fifth season in the category, having finished second last time out in Austria after winning five of the previous six races.
"I am very happy to be able to announce that next season I will continue with Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS in the Moto2 category,” Marquez said. "I am very grateful for the confidence of the team.
"With its renewed technical structure, a key part of the current success, I will be able to continue for one more year to improve as a rider, raise my riding level and prepare myself to fulfil my dream of making the leap to MotoGP.”
The 23-year-old was understood to have been offered a Petronas Sprinta Moto2 ride for 2020, but the deal fell apart, with Yamaha’s reluctance to give him one of its satellite bikes in MotoGP for the year after believed to be a major factor.
This means Marquez has now re-committed to Marc VDS for a sixth straight season in the category.
