The 2019 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season, officially called 2019 FIM MotoGP World Championship, was the 71st F.I.M. Road Racing World Championship season.

After fifteen rounds of the championship, Marc Márquez successfully defended his Rider's Championship in Thailand taking his sixth premier class title, having already won nine races. He ultimately won 12 races, breaking the single-season points and podium records with 420 points and 18 podium finishes from 19 races. The previous two seasons' championship runner-up Andrea Dovizioso once again finished second for Ducati with two wins and Maverick Viñales on a Yamaha sealed third with two wins. Álex Rins and Danilo Petrucci were the other race winners, both Rins and Petrucci winning their first races during the season. In spite of Márquez's sizeable championship margin, seven races, namely Qatar, Italy, Austria, Britain, San Marino, Thailand and Australia were decided with last-lap passes, the season having plenty of close racing.

Rule changes[edit]

The season saw the introduction of a new penalty called the "Long Lap" penalty for infractions such as exceeding track limits or engaging in reckless riding. At each circuit, a route is to be defined and marked at a safe point around the circuit (usually an asphalt run-off area outside of a turn). The penalised rider must ride through the defined area within 3 laps of being notified, thereby suffering a penalty equivalent to several seconds, (typically 2 or more seconds), on that lap. [39]
