As Marc Marquez continues his domination in MotoGP at the French Grand Prix of Le Mans, we’ve come up with a short list of firsts that are within his reach on race day:
- If Marquez is the fastest qualifier at Le Mans, this will mark the first time that a rider has started from pole at six or more consecutive MotoGP races since Casey Stoner was on pole at seven successive races in 2008, riding a Ducati.

- A Le Mans victory would make him the youngest ever rider, at the age of 21 years and 90 days, to win five successive races in the premier class, taking the record from Mike Hailwood who was 22 years and 160 days old when he won five successive races in the 500 class in 1962, riding an MV Agusta.
