This is the surprising classification of the 2023 MotoGP World Championship


Two MotoGP Grand Prix and there have been two different leaders, although the nationality of the leader, an Italian, and the motorcycle they ride, a Ducati, have been retained. pecco bagnaia, the man who will wear the number 1 on his fairing throughout 2023 as the current champion, left Portimao leading with 37 points out of a possible 37 for his two wins in the Sprint and the Race. And from Argentina, his friend took over the VR46 Academy Marco Bezzecchi to his 50 points after being second and first in Argentina’s two races and now he scored 9 points for Bagnaia, second.

Marco Bezzecchi took the baton from Pecco Bagnaia as the new leader after adding 34 points out of a possible 37 at Termas de Río Hondo compared to just 4 points for the rider defending the MotoGP crown by adding only his sixth in Sprint race after zero in the race.

After 9th and 5th in Portimao and 5th and 3rd in Termas Àlex Márquez became the best Spanish rider in the MotoGP classification, fourth, 17 points behind the new leader after just two Grand Prix rides on the Gresini team’s Ducati. He overtook Maverick Viñales, who finished second to fifth with 18 points to lose with the new leader and nine with respect to Bagnaia after the Argentine fiasco for Aprilia where all that didn’t make the double would have been a small result.

Three of the men who starred at the 2022 World Cup alongside champions Bagnaia are in trouble: Fabio Quartararo is tenth with 32 points, Aleix Espargaró is 13th with 38 points and last is Enea Bastianini who has no points after Marini’s attack in the first race at the Portimao Sprint where he was injured.

Marc Márquez he dropped to 16th place, 43 points behind the leader – he lost 34 with Bagnaia – after he failed to appear in Argentina due to surgery on his right thumb. He is expected to return to Austin while the compliance or otherwise of his double long lap penalty for taking Oliveira out front in the Portuguese race is resolved. To find the first Honda rider, Álex Rins, you have to drop down to 12th place.

Good start for the rookie Augusto Fernandez that despite being alone in the GasGas box -from Austin the KTM tester Folger arrived as a reinforcement until the injured Pol Espargaró returned- was 14th.
