    Default Honda won MotoGP Constructors Title 2017

    Honda has won the Constructors Title in the 2017 FIM MotoGP World Championship.

    Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team RC213V) finished 4th in the Malaysian Grand Prix, giving Honda a sufficient points-lead to take the constructors’ crown for the second year in a row, with one race, Valencia, remaining in the season.

    Each race in the Constructors championship, bike manufacturers are awarded points equal to their best rider’s result. The title is determined by the total points earned. Honda's title was won by the combined efforts of Repsol Honda Team's Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa on Honda factory bikes, and LCR Honda's Cal Crutchlow.

    Since winning its first premier class title in 1966 on a 4-stroke 500cc Honda RC181, Honda has won a total of 23 constructors titles. FIM: Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme

    Marc Marquez, said, “Today the race was the most difficult one we could have had for the Championship because we had rain conditions and the track was extremely slippery. Anyway, I got a good start, and I tried to push at the beginning because I didn’t want to be stuck in the middle of the group. Then I tried to find the feeling and the pace but I saw that both the Ducatis were very fast, so I decided to not take too many risks, to be calm, and to get good points for the Championship. I thought about trying to get Zarco but the risk was too big just to have an advantage of 24 points instead of 21. This wasn’t the race to win the Title but rather one to get closer to it. I’m happy because after a difficult weekend, at a track where we always struggle, we still managed to finish fourth. Of course now we need to keep focused, to train well this week, and to work to be at 100% on Sundayin Valencia without relaxing too much with the advantage we have. Today we won the Constructor Title, and that’s a first step!”.

    Dani Pedrosa, said, “Overall I’m happy with the result, and I’d like to thank my team for giving me a bike that allowed me to be competitive. Of course after earning the pole yesterday, the expectations would have been high if the conditions were dry, and when I saw the rain starting to fall I thought we might go from first to last. But in the end we changed the setting, trying something we had never used before in an effort to get more rear grip, and it worked! That and the choice of the soft rear tyre gave me confidence. The feeling still wasn’t perfect because the tyre was spinning on the straights, but at least it gave me edge grip and I was able to lean the bike. We’ve learned something that I think may also be helpful for the technicians in the future, so we can be satisfied. Today Honda won the Constructor Championship, and that’s important. It’s another title for the Company, and I’m happy about that.”

    Great looks like all that "Activa money" is paying off.
