2022 Thailand MotoGP: Race preview

A captivating MotoGP season produced another classic race last weekend as Quartararo extended his championship lead to 18 points in Japan.

Closest rival Bagnaia was in stunning form going into the race, but he crashed attempting to overtake the reigning world champion and current leader in a major moment in the title race.

“I was lucky that I didn’t touch Fabio in my crash, so I didn’t disturb his race, because it has been a big mess from me, and I’m not happy about it,” he said.

Aleix Espargaro also failed to register any points after finishing 16th, leaving Quartararo to inch closer to the title for a second successive year despite finishing eighth.

Australian Jack Miller capitalised on the contenders slipping up, finishing three seconds ahead of South African KTM rider Brad Binder to clinch victory in Motegi.

Miller and Binder were joined on the podium by Pramac’s Jorge Martin.

The returning six-time world champion Marc Marquez started on pole for Honda but finished fourth in his first race in three and half months following surgery on his arm.

The upshot of a remarkable Japanese Grand Prix is that Quartararo leads Bagnaia by 18 points and Espargaro by a further seven. Fourth-placed Enea Bastianini is 49 points off the pace.

Double MotoGP race winner Danilo Petrucci will make a surprise return in Thailand as Joan Mir’s replacement as the Spaniard struggles with an ankle injury sustained in Austria.

“I know it won’t be easy, so I’m not putting any expectations on the experience, I just want to enjoy it,” he said.

“I’m also excited to be one of the few riders in history jumping from a MotoGP machine to a Dakar bike, a Superbike, then another factory MotoGP bike!”

With four races remaining in an unpredictable MotoGP season, strap yourselves in for another action-packed weekend in Thailand.
