Tochigi Prefecture, 20th October 2019 – A dominating victory from Marc Marquez at the Japanese GP, Honda secure the Constructors Championship for a record 25th time in front of their home fans in Japan.

A total of 10 race wins, 17 podiums and 356 points in 2019 see Honda add the premier- class Constructors Championship to the Rider Championship achieved by Marc Marquez last time out in Buriram. This is the 20th time Honda has taken the Rider and Constructors Championships in the same year.

From the iconic RC181 in 1966 to the modern masterpiece that is the RC213V, Honda have amassed 307 wins in the premier class on their way to taking a total of 25 premier class Constructors Championship titles. The 2019 title is the seventh for the RC213V and the 12th title for Honda in the modern four-stroke era. Prior to this, the NSR500 dominated proceedings between 1984 and 2001, collecting 11 Constructors Championships.

Jim Redman and Mike Hailwood were the two pioneering riders who helped Honda clinch their first premier-class Constructors Championship back in 1966. Since returning to Grand Prix racing in 1979, Honda have won 58.5% of the Constructors Championships on offer.
