Has 2020 sprung several new title contenders for 2021?

We’ll never get tired of milking how sensational the racing was in 2020. Mir, Franco Morbidelli, former teammate Fabio Quartararo, and 2021 teammates Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder all won their first MotoGP™ races this year, and you could arguable that only one of those riders were seriously backed as a title contender for 2020 – seven-time podium finisher Quartararo. So, with this in mind, how many title contenders do we really have in 2021? Now on factory machines, all of the above riders mentioned have to be considered as genuine title contenders. So three-time winner Quartararo, three-time winner Morbidelli, two-time winner Oliveira and one-time winner and Rookie of the Year Binder all have a chance at the title. Reigning World Champion Mir is of course after his sensational year, and teammate Alex Rins is definitely a title contender too.
