The 2019 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season is the 71st F.I.M. Road Racing World Championship season.

After seven rounds of the championship, title defender Marc Márquez on a Honda leads the championship after four race wins, chasing his sixth premier class title.

Rule changes[edit]

The season saw the introduction of a new penalty called the "Long Lap" penalty for exceeding track limits, which, at every circuit, is a route defined and marked at a safe point around the circuit (usually a run-off area outside of a turn). Any rider that receives the penalty must ride through the area within 3 laps of being notified.
