We took to Twitter to find out what you thought of Marc Marquez and his record breaking Championship after the MotoGP finale from Valencia

There could only be one. Lorenzo always had a tough task but Marquez had to have a wise head on his shoulders, act with expereince that belies his age

But he handled the pressure like a master, riding a tactical race, keeping himself clean and gravel free all weekend

And it worked out, despite tactics from Lorenzo and tight battles he hung on and the celebrations could start right at the checkered flag

Not even Honda expected this so quickly but the joy for the Japanese was plain to see

His fans though, never doubted him

His achievements were recognised across sports with football’s Gerard Pique being there for the moment

This was the third time he could celebrate the Championship on the podium…the first time, in his 125cc year, he wasn’t old enough to spray the champagne

As a result of an amazing year, he got do to this

And this

He rewrote history as the youngest premier class champion and only the third to win the what is now the Moto3-2-GP triple

Was this destiny? Could you see it in his eyes, as a young kid on a bike and meeting his heroes?

He had fun with his age – I think he will be a great asset to MotoGP for many years

He still loves his games, or so it seems (though he can ride the real thing…). Wonder if he is any good?

He is the ultimate athlete of this moment

And as if it wasnt’ enough to be Champion, he gets a BMW as well

His style is unique, from the generation that grew up with the gadgets…and apparently an ability to defy physics

Win, like here at Laguna, or lose like in Australia, he was always smiling

He has his first book cover – I’m sure there are many more to come

And a video to go out on…
