P9-P10-P12: title trio under pressure as Sepang showers loom

With stakes higher than ever in 2022, MotoGP™ Q2 at the PETRONAS Grand Prix of Malaysia delivered drama aplenty for the three main title contenders – and a bonkers new all-time lap record for Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing). Despite his Turn 4 crash on his second time attack outing in Q2, Bagnaia will crucially start ahead of both Quartararo and Espargaro. Not the day Bagnaia, Quartararo or Espargaro would have been looking for in Malaysia, then. With just the Valencia finale to go after this weekend, Espargaro has no choice but to take three or more points off Pecco – to get it to 24 points with Pecco’s superior race win tally this year – if he stands any chance of winning the title. Will Bagnaia become a MotoGP™ World Champion, or are we set for a title showdown in Valencia?.
