2022 Valencia MotoGP: Race preview
After eight months and 19 races, the paddock heads to Valencia for what promises to be a thrilling weekend with the MotoGP and Moto2 titles up for grabs.
Bagnaia has a 23-point lead over second-placed Quartararo and is in pole position to claim the premier class crown after moving closer to his first world title with victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix.
It was his seventh win of the season and fifth in the last nine races, a sensational run that has put him on the brink of a triumph that looked impossible at the season’s halfway stage.
The title will be his if he finishes 14th or better at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana. Quartararo must win and hope Bagnaia is P15 or lower to defend his title.
“For Valencia, we like to understand that we can be strong enough without forcing as I did yesterday,” said the championship leader after a stunning performance in Sepang.
“Valencia is a track that I like,” added Quartararo. “Last year was not our best race, but the only thing I need to do is fight for the win.”
The top three will also be decided in Spain, with Aleix Espargaro and Enea Bastianini likely to battle it out for third, although they can still both finish second.
Jack Miller can also technically claim third, but he is 23 points off the pace and would require an unlikely turn of events to finish above Espargaro and Bastianini.
In Moto2, Augusto Fernandez and Ai Ogura will go head-to-head for the title after the Japanese rider dramatically crashed out in the last lap in Malaysia.
The Spaniard leads by 9.5 points ahead of the decider which will also determine the fate of the teams’ title.
This weekend will be the first title decider since 2017 as Bagnaia looks to complete one of the greatest comebacks the sport has seen and win his first MotoGP title.
