Track length 2.76 miles Top speed 216.2mph Av­er­age speed 109.6mph Cir­cuit record 1m 28.108s (Mar­quez) 2016 podium Crutchlow, Rossi, Viñales Most wins Stoner (6) MCN’S tip for the win Mar­quez

Much like Casey Stoner be­fore him, Mar­quez has made Phillip Is­land his own – even if he some­times has a prob­lem with fin­ish­ing the job! De­nied wins by crashes and even dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tions (most re­cently in 2016 when he crashed out of the lead while un­der pres­sure from Crutchlow). But with the ti­tle look­ing likely to go down to the last round this year, he won’t be able to take quite the same amount of risks this time out. While that doesn’t mean he’ll be any slower, a more conservative ap­proach should still see him take the vic­tory.
