MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez has signed a two-year extension to his contract with Repsol Honda.

Marquez became the youngest-ever champion in motorcycling's top class last season and has won all four of the races from pole position this year.

He has a 28-point lead in the championship ahead of this weekend's French Grand Prix at Le Mans.

"It is a great honour to be a part of the Honda family and I'm glad to remain with this special group of people for another two seasons."

"I am very happy to announce my renewal with HRC. I had always dreamed about being part of the Repsol Honda Team, and thanks to Honda the dream came true a year and a half ago," he said.

"Everything happened very quickly last season, and I would have never imagined that I could achieve what we did. Becoming World Champion during my first season was another dream which became reality.

"It is a great honour to be a part of the Honda family and I'm glad to remain with this special group of people for another two seasons."

Honda Racing Corporation executive vice president Shuhei Nakamoto added: "We are very satisfied to have reached an agreement to keep Marc in the team for a further two seasons."
