The Spanish motorcycle road racer Marc Marquez achieved his tenth victory of the season after winning the 125 cc 2010 Portuguese Grand Prix that took place in Estoril, and is now very close to winning his first World Championship title.

Sports gambling fans should take into consideration that Marquez is in first place in the overall standings with a total of 297 points over Nico Terol, who trails with 280 points.

We could say that the 17-year-old rider had all weekend against him. Marquez fell on the out lap and goes back into the garage with serious damage in his bike. However, his team worked extremely quickly and Marc had time to return to the grid, but from the last place.

Marquez received yesterday the recognition of all his teammates and even of the MotoGP riders. For his part, the Catalan rider acknowledged that his fall in the out lap was "a rookie mistake."

"The rain stopped and we went out on slicks for the second race." Marquez said. "In the sighting lap, I made a junior's mistake. I went out carefully and in the first few turns I saw that the track was completely dry, so I decided to push it a bit more to warm the tires and when I entered the last turn, I simply lost the bike."

Terol and Marquez are the only two drivers that can still win the 125 c.c. world as Pol Espargaro finished tenth and that leaves him no chance to be the world champion. Espargaro chose to use rain tires, but the rain did not appear, so he fell to 10th place.

In addition, the final race of the season will be in Valencia and Marquez can finish in eighth place and thus win the championship, which completes the Spanish hat trick after the titles of Jorge Lorenzo in MotoGP and Toni Elias in Moto2.
