After two debut MotoGP victories for satellite Yamaha star Fabio Quartararo and a shock first win for rookie Brad Binder and KTM, what will round four at the Red Bull Ring bring?

Ducati has won every race since the circuit returned to the calendar in 2016 but the Factory GP20 riders struggled last time at Brno, when Johann Zarco stepped up to make history for Avinta with a pole and podium using last year's bike.

Adding to the uncertainty this weekend is the weather, with thunderstorms a threat throughout the event.
