Aragon MotoGP - Bastianini wins from Bagnaia - as it happened

Last Updated: 18 Sep 2022 - 14:11

Francesco Bagnaia starts from pole at the Aragon MotoGP as he looks to claim a fifth consecutive win.

Championship leader Fabio Quartararo has it all to do after qualifiyng in sixth, seven tenths down on the Italian. 

Marc Marquez starts from 13th in his first race back since Mugello, while a disappointing qualifying for Maverick Vinales means one of the pre-race favourites is only 16th.
