Japan has finally re-organized the world’s most prestigious motorcycle racing championship after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The schedule change at the 2022 Japanese MotoGP has been set in advance because of the potential for delays in logistics arrival due to the conflict in Ukraine.

In the 2022 Japanese MotoGP, the competition for the world title between Fabio Quartararo and Francesco Bagnaia will continue as well. The two drivers are now only 10 points adrift in the standings after Quartararo failed to finish at Aragon, while Bagnaia finished runner-up behind Enea Bastianini.
Quartararo will try to keep his distance in this crucial phase. Even so, Yamaha has failed to win at Motegi for five seasons, with the last being achieved by Jorge Lorenzo in 2014. While Quartararo finished second (2019), while still defending Petronas SRT.
Bagnaia’s situation is also not very good despite winning four of the last five races. The reason is, the only Bagnaia race in the premier class there ended with a thirteenth finish. In addition, Ducati proved to be less than good after Andrea Dovizioso (2017) became their only rider to win since Casey Stoner in 2010.
Attention will also be directed to Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez. The Spaniard is on a mission to bounce back after a disappointing comeback at Aragon, and become the ruler of Motegi after taking the most wins (3).
