The rider to beat, however, is Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia whose summer scandal in Ibiza is now firmly behind him.

Bagnaia has won the past four races, including at Silverstone, and paddock theories question whether his title charge could benefit from Ducati team orders because of the sheer quantity of red bikes.

Fabio Quartararo of Yamaha is the reigning champion and leads the 2022 standings but has remarkably won less races than Bagnaia this season. If he is to secure back-to-back titles, Aragon is a good place to rediscover his form.
