Sydney - Five-time world champion Mick Doohan doesn't just expect his record streak of consecutive Grand Prix victories to fall to Marc Marquez, he's predicting the 21-year-old Spanish rider can win all 18 Moto GP races this season.

The Repsol Honda Team rider powered to his 10th straight win when he beat Yamaha pair Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi at the Indianapolis GP on Sunday, equaling the modern era mark set by Doohan in 1997.

The series continues in Brno, Czech Republic, next weekend.
