On two-wheels, MotoGP is Live from Motegi in Japan from Friday to Sunday, when Marc Marquez will attempt to further cement his name in history by sealing an incredible seventh world title, and his fifth in the premier class at just 25 years of age.

In hot pursuit of Marquez will be Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Australia’s Jack Miller, when they go on the hunt for a win before they land on local shores for the Australian GP at Phillip Island next weekend.

Hamilton will also be gunning for his fifth consecutive win at the Circuit of Americas in Texas, but he will have to hold onto his cowboy hat tightly with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and the bucking Red Bull’s of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo eager to join in the rodeo on race day.
