Preview & favorites check

If the experts’ predictions prove correct, the Barcelona MotoGP should once again be a Spanish-Italian duel.

The top favorites at the Barcelona MotoGP are world championship leader Jorge Martin and reigning world champion Francesco Bagnaia.

Martin won the last race in LeMans and extended his points tally to 129 points. His Spanish compatriot Marc Marquez finished second

Francesco Bagnaia won the penultimate race in Jerez after his opening victory in Qatar and recently finished third in France. Thanks to the two podium finishes, the Italian is back in second place in the world championship standings with 91 points.

Marc Marquez (89 points, 3rd) and Enea Bastianini (89 points, 4th), who has finished in the top 5 in every race of the season so far, are also considered to have a good chance of a top finish at the Barcelona GP.

The two Spaniards Maverick Vinales (winner in Austin and fifth in the World Championship) and Pedro Acosta, who is sixth in the riders’ standings, complete the shortlist of favorites. Both have the potential to have a say in victory at their home race
