JAPAN - Honda driver Marc Marquez believes that his team would love to celebrate winning the MotoGP title on home turf at the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday, however, the Spaniard is offering no guarantees.

Victory on Sunday would seal a third consecutive MotoGP crown for Marquez and tie him with Australian Mick Doohan as the third-most successful rider in history with five premier class world titles.

Only Italian pair Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini have more at eight each. Marquez is 77 points clear of Italian Andrea Dovizioso with four races remaining.
