Honda Rac­ing had a great 2018 sea­son with Marc Mar­quez and dani Pedrosa help­ing the team to get a triple crown in Mo­togP: Rider, con­struc­tor, and Team. While Mar­quez won the rid­ers’ cham­pi­onship, honda Rac­ing won the con­struc­tors’ ti­tle and Rep­sol honda the team crown. honda rid­ers were con­sis­tent through­out the sea­son, Mar­quez be­ing on the top of his game. This en­abled him to win his fifth Mo­togP ti­tle de­spite be­ing in­jured dur­ing the sec­ond half of the sea­son. dani Pedrosa also per­formed well in the 2018 sea­son; al­though the Lit­tle Samu­rai was able fin­ish only in 11th place. The last round of the sea­son in Va­len­cia was quite emo­tional for the Spa­niard, it be­ing his last Mo­togP race. he fin­ished fifth be­fore bid­ding adieu to com­pet­i­tive rac­ing.

apart from in­ter­act­ing with the Mo­togP rid­ers, we also had an op­por­tu­nity to talk ex­clu­sively to the idemitsu honda Team asia rid­ers who en­light­ened us on how Moto2 and Moto3 classes had been for them and how honda helped them reach the world stage. Start­ing with the Moto2 rid­ers, the team in­cluded rid­ers like Khairul id­ham Pawi and Tet­suta na­gashima, both of whom have con­sid­er­able ex­pe­ri­ence in the world of rac­ing.
