“A dream grid” – MotoGP™ in 2022 boasts 14 World Champions

The opening round of the 2022 MotoGP™ World Championship is only around the corner, with the lights of Lusail International Circuit primed and ready for the Qatar Grand Prix. There’s plenty to look forward to as six manufacturers, 12 teams and 24 full-time riders prepare to battle it out in wheel-to-wheel combat for Championship glory across 21 weekends. “Look at the number of World Champions who are now in the class. There’s plenty of premier class pedigree across the grid, with 12 riders on the full-time entry list with race-winning experience, with 111 wins between them. Following Rossi’s retirement, Marc Marquez holds the record for most wins from an active rider with 59, more than all the other riders put together (52). 23 riders have had race victories in at least one of the three classes of Grand Prix racing, four more than last year, with a total of 330 Grand Prix victories (379 in 2020). One rookie is a GP winner and a World Champion: Remy Gardner (six wins and 2021 Moto2™ World Champion).
