Having reduced Fabio Quartararo’s championship lead from 91 to just two points in the last three months, Francesco Bagnaia has momentum on his side in the 2022 MotoGP world championship fight.

But does that make him title favourite, or is reigning champion Quartararo still going to be too tough to overcome in normal circumstances? And can Aleix Espargaro still spring a surprise? And should we even count out Enea Bastianini and Jack Miller?

Simon Patterson and Valentin Khorounzhiy join stand-in host Matt Beer to debate what might happen in the championship denouement on The Race MotoGP Podcast.

Likely form at the three remaining tracks, potential weather curveballs and the role of Ducati’s massive gaggle of bikes and approach to team orders all play into our panel’s deliberations.

The latest information about Marc Marquez’s progress back towards full fitness and competitiveness, Danilo Petrucci’s return, the shocking video that emerged of a physical assault in a Moto3 garage in 2019, and Buriram winner Miguel Oliveira’s wild form fluctuations are also discussed.
