Live Moto GP Austrian Grand Prix 2022

We review the starting position of the rest of the Spanish riders that we have not commented on so far. Joan Mir starts in 8th place, Alex Rins in 11th, Pol Espargaró in 15th, Raúl Fernández in 23rd and Alex Márquez in 25th.

ALEIX ESPARGARÓ BASES EVERYTHING ON ITS REGULARITY. The rider from Granollers has scored points in his last 13 races, his best historical streak with Aprilia and the best since a streak of 17 Grand Prix in a row between 2015 and 2016. He is, along with Marc Márquez, the only rider on the current MotoGP grid who has scored points in all the races he has contested this season (Aleix has contested all 12 Grand Prix this season and Márquez, six).

MAVERICK VIÑALES EXPLODES WITH APRILIA. Maverick Viñales has already completed his adaptation to the Italian bike. The rider from Roses has managed to finish on the podium in the last two races and has never before achieved three consecutive podium finishes in his eight seasons in MotoGP.

We will have to see what revenues Fabio Quartararo can obtain today, as we said. It will also be a day of endurance for the Aprilias. Maverick Viñales starts the test in 7th place, while Aleix Espargaró does so in 9th.

JORGE MARTÍN RETURNS TO HIS FAVORITE CIRCUIT. The driver from Madrid, who today starts in 4th position, has finished on the podium in his last four races at the Red Bull Ring circuit in all categories, including two victories (Austrian Grand Prix in 2020 and Styrian Grand Prix in 2021 -his only victory so far in MotoGP-). In fact, since 2017, he has been on the podium in six of the seven races at the Austrian track, failing only in 2019 (7th in Moto2).

JACK MILLER, GOING FOR HIS RECORD FOR PODIUMS IN THE SAME YEAR. The Australian Ducati rider has finished on the podium in two of his last three races. He has achieved four podium finishes in 2022 and with one more he could reach his best figure so far in MotoGP (five in 2019 and 2021).

Fabio Quartararo was 3rd in his first MotoGP race at the Red Bull Ring (2019), although he has not passed seventh position in the last three: 8th at the 2020 Austrian GP, ​​13th at the 2020 Styrian GP and 7th at the 2021 Austrian GP.

FABIO QUARTARARO, TO TRY TO RECOVER THE LEVEL. The current leader of MotoGP, who starts today in 5th position, has not finished on the podium in his last two MotoGP races and has not linked three in a row in MotoGP since the last three last season.

In the drivers' standings, Fabio Quartararo has 180 points, 22 more than Aleix Espargaró and 49 more than Francesco Bagnaia.

…AND THE RECORD OF VICTORIES IN THE SAME SEASON. The Italian Ducati rider has achieved four victories in 2022 and with just one more victory, he will achieve his best record of victories in the same season in the highest category.

BAGNAIA ASPIRES FOR THE FIRST 'TRIPLET' OF HIS CAREER… 'Pecco' Bagnaia has just won the last two races. He has achieved the double wins in a row for the third time in his MotoGP career and today could be the first time that he has won three in a row in his four seasons in the premier class.

THE BEAST, WITH WET GUNPOWDER. Enea Bastianini has failed to finish on the podium in her last five races, her worst streak since she earned her first MotoGP box appearance at the 2021 San Marino Grand Prix.

Enea Bastianini starts from pole position in MotoGP for the first time and for the first time since the 2018 Catalunya Grand Prix when she was a Moto3 rider.

Today the first four positions on the starting grid are occupied by Ducati riders. Enea Bastianini starts from pole, followed by Francesco Bagnaia and Jack Miller. While Jorge Martín does it from fourth place. Fabio Quartararo would be the first non-Ducati rider on the grid and will start the race from 5th place.

RED BULL RING, DUCATI TERRITORY. The Italian factory has won five of the six races held since the return of the Austrian Grand Prix to the championship in 2016 and has done so with three different drivers (Andrea Ianonne: 2016, Jorge Lorenzo: 2018 and Andrea Dovizioso: 2017, 2019 and 2020).

THE COMEBACK OF 'PECCO' BAGNAIA. After an uneven start to the year, the Ducati rider's assault on the MotoGP championship is taking shape every day, simmering in the last few races. Today, moreover, it runs on a track in which the Italian brand has been a great dominator in recent years, so we could see a new Sunday in which Bagnaia cuts the disadvantage it maintains with respect to Fabio Quartararo, current champion and leader of the classification in the queen class.

After the victories of Ayumu Sasaki in Moto3 and Ai Ogura in Moto2, we are now focusing on everything that may happen in a few moments in the premier class race.

Hello !!! Welcome to the live broadcast of the MotoGP race of the Austrian Grand Prix, the 13th round of the 2022 season. Are you ready? We start…
