Having already amazed with his performances across 2013, Marc Marquez could become the youngest ever MotoGP World Champion in Australia this weekend.

MotoGP will air Sunday 9a ET on FOX Sports 1. Don’t miss out on the excitement!

Should he do so, the 20-year-old will become the first rookie rider to claim the ultimate prize since Kenny Roberts did so 35 years ago, in 1978.

Marquez’s destiny in Australia will depend on the finishing positions of Factory Racing’s and Repsol Honda Team colleague Dani Pedrosa, as well as what the newcomer is able to achieve, but he must finish at least eighth to claim the crown.
