Spanish sports sensation Marc Márquez is the subject of a new five-part series, Marc Márquez: ALL IN, which is available to watch now on Red Bull TV.
In the past 10 years, Márquez has won 59 MotoGP races, and claimed six titles in the premier class. Before that came 26 wins in the feeder 125cc (now Moto3) and Moto2 classes, resulting in a world championship title in each. His limitless appetite for competition was an unstoppable force, until an injury in the first race of the 2020 MotoGP World Championship series threatened to end his career at its peak.
“From the documentary, you can expect real drama,” commented Márquez. It is one person making big decisions for his career and his personal life. It is ups and downs. ‘Sacrifice’, this is a good word to describe the situation. In the series you will see I was living in my hometown. But I moved to Madrid because the doctors and physio’s that I wanted were here. I said no to my hometown, no to my family and I completely changed my life. This was for one target; this was to try and win again. Not to again be a good rider, it is to win again.”
The series includes interviews with Marquez’s inner circle, teammates, press and even competitors he once looked up to, such as compatriot and fellow MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo, to paint the picture of Marquez’s life as a MotoGP rider.
“When I arrived in MotoGP, the king category, it was a surprise for everybody because I won straight away in the first year against my idols such as Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo. When I was a kid I had their posters, and when I played on the video game, I was Valentino Rossi,” added Márquez. “And then in 2013 I jumped in MotoGP, and I won the category. In my career, that was the biggest thing, and I did it.”
Two-time Formula One World Champion, Max Verstappen said of Márquez: “He does things on the bike that not many other people can do […] You always have to keep believing that you can come back to your full strength. Once he’s come back to his full strength, he’s going to dominate again.”
With a final roll of the dice on offer to rectify his injuries, Márquez invited cameras into his life, on and off track, for the first time ever throughout 2022. It was the journey he hoped would finally deliver him back to the top of the podium as MotoGP world champion.
The MotoGP documentary Marc Márquez: ALL IN is a year on the road with Márquez that pieces together the making of a champion athlete and provides unprecedented access at the most personal level.
