After eight unpredictable rounds, have a small group of riders finally emerged as true 2020 MotoGP title contenders?

 

The top eight in the world championship were all covered by 25 points heading into the recent Catalunya round.

But by the chequered flag in Barcelona, only four remained within one-race win of the top.

Fabio Quartararo's first victory since Jerez propelled the Petronas Yamaha rider back to the head of the standings, while the previous leader Andrea Dovizioso dropped to fourth place (-24 points) after being caught up in Johann Zarco's lap one fall.

Between them now sit Suzuki's Joan Mir (-8 points) and Monster Yamaha's Maverick Vinales (-18 points).

With fifth-place Franco Morbidelli now 31 points from the top and openly doubting whether a rider on a satellite ('A-Spec') bike can fight for the crown, is MotoGP now poised for a Quartararo-Mir-Vinales-Dovizioso championship shootout or will further twists shuffle the pack yet again?

Six rounds, starting in Le Mans this weekend, where the weather is expected to be cold and rainy, will decide the outcome...
