When this first quarter of the championship ends, the undisputed figure of the leader will emerge Jorge Martin Whatever happens this weekend, it will continue to lead the championship as it arrives with a 38-point lead and 37 shared by Ducati Lenovo in the team classification thanks to the combined efforts of Bagnaia and Bastianini, who have just been added. less victories than ‘Martinator’. Marc Márquez in his resurgent campaign is third in contention.


Repsol Honda

The most successful team in history continues its particular and endless journey in the desert. Between Joan Mir and Luca Marini they add 12 points, they are 168 from the head, but the dozen is contributed by only one of them, the 2020 champion Mir, who is the best Honda in the table, and has top 12th. in Portimao and Jerez. Joan had second in Montmeló in 2020, but last year on Honda he was 17th; Luca has a Moto2 win.



LCR Honda

Honda’s satellite team, LCR, added three more points than the official team with the Zarco-Nakagami duo. The Frenchman has nine points and a top two 12th at Lusail and Le Mans while the Japanese collects 6 for his 14th at Portimao, Jerez and Le Mans.



Monster Energy Yamaha

The situation of the other great MotoGP colossus is not more energetic, but at least the official Yamaha team triples its Honda colleagues in points after all the internal changes carried out at the entry of the European technical talent in Iwata. Between Quartararo, 12th in the standings, and Rins, 20th, they have 32 points, 25 for the Frenchman and 7 for the Spaniard. Fabio lost the podium in the Jerez Sprint due to a penalty and seventh in Portimao was his limit. Rins has less than two 13ths in Portimao and Jerez. In 2020 and 2022, Quartararo won at Montmeló and Rims was third in that 2020 race.



Trackhouse Racing

The American satellite team of Aprilia added more points than the two official teams of Honda and Yamaha, 41, 23 points contributed by Miguel Oliveira and 18 by Raúl Fernández, who are 14th and 15th in the table. But the difference in respect to Aprilia Racing is abysmal compared to other satellites regarding its officials. Oliveira’s best result was 9th in Portugal and Raúl an impressive 10th in Austin. Miguel won at Montmeló with KTM in 2021.



Pertamina Enduro VR46

In 2024, the team of Valentino Rossi is missing the results of Bezzecchi, who has not yet fully adapted to GP23. In fact Fabio Di Giannantonio is better placed in the table, ninth, with 47 points, 11 more than ‘Bez’. At Austin and Le Mans Diggia finished sixth and consistently placed in the top-10. Bezzecchi was third in Jerez, but started the year with 14th in Qatar. They have no outstanding results in Montmeló -Bez was 12th last year-.



Red Bull GasGas Tech3

The theoretical second KTM team is only five points behind the first and includes the most explosive rookie since Marc Márquez appeared in 2013, Pedro Acosta from Murcia, who contributed 73 of the 86 points and six on the table. He was third in Portimao and second in Austin and also had a second in the Jerez Sprint. His teammate Augusto Fernández is 17th in the table and 11th in Portugal. Pedro has yet to be on the podium in Montmeló -two sixths in Moto2 is his limit-; Augusto was poleman and third in Moto2.



Red Bull KTM factory

91 points were added to Brad Binder and Jack Miller, who were surpassed by rookie Acosta. Binder was seventh with 67 points and Miller 13th with 24. The South African started two seconds into Lusail and from then on he started qualifying poorly and did not hold his head high. Miller was even worse, his fifth in two races in Portugal his best. In Montmeló Binder, since his second in 2016 in Moto3, has not returned for the podium and eighth is his best in MotoGP and Miller has third in 2021.

Marc Márquez came second in the Le Mans Sprint


Gresini Race

The Gresini team has 122 points, only 58 points behind the leader. 89 of them are signed by the ‘new’ Marc Márquez, ‘the reborn’, and 33 by his brother Àlex. The 93 came from two good second places in the race at Jerez and Le Mans and three out of five seconds in the Sprint and its worst results were the ‘clash’ with Bagnaia at Portimao and the crash in the lead at Austin due to the front brake. It is higher in the table than the third party occupying 40 points behind the leader. His brother is paying for his bad qualification and Jerez’s quarter is his limit. Both Marc and Àlex know what it means to win in Montmeló; 93rd in MotoGP in 2014 and 2019, his last podium at home, and 73rd three times in the smaller categories, also the last in 2019. Last year he was sixth.



Aprilia Racing

The official Aprilia team accumulates 122 points in the first quarter of the championship, 81 from Maverick Viñales, top-5, and 51 from Aleix Espargaró, top-8. The one from the Roses has three wins this 2024, the Austin double starting from pole and the Sprint victory at Portimao and will come third in the Le Mans Sprint. ‘Il Capitano’ Espargaró started third in the Sprint at Lusail, but in the race he has never been better than seventh in Austin. They arrived at the circuit where they dazzled in 2023, signing a double in the race with Aleix and Maverick with a double victory at Granollers.



Premium Pramac Racing

Pramac, team world champion in 2023, is classified second, 36 points behind the official Ducati Lenovo because 129 of the 144 points were contributed by World Championship leader Jorge Martín alone while his teammate Franco Morbidelli, who started the campaign in low Thanks to a serious autumn training with SBK and without having done the preseason, he added only 15. Martín’s numbers are like a dream: five wins, three Sprints and two races including a double in Le Mans, and he just missed the podium in Austin – fourth- and by crashing when he was leading in Jerez. He has yet to win at Montmeló but came second in 2022, taking advantage of Aleix Espargaró’s massive mistake, and third in 2023.



Ducati Lenovo Team

Although between their two riders they have fewer wins than Jorge Martín, Pecco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini put the official Ducati team at the top of the squads with 36 points ahead, one second in the world championship and the fourth with the same points as the third. Marc Márquez. Neither has been on a Sprint podium and although Bagnaia has two wins at Lusail and Jerez, he has not maintained a regular line and only lost the fight for second place at Le Mans hands down by Marc Márquez with someone older than you. The ‘Beast’ is always in the top-5, with second in Portugal and third in Austin as the only podiums. Montmeló is not a circuit that favors either of them. Bagnaia has not finished the last two races, his fall last year painful after a violent highside at the exit of turn 2. He has not been on the podium in a long race. The Beast won Moto3 in 2018 and has yet to return to the podium. He did not finish the last two MotoGP races, especially the painful one in 2023 because he was the cause of the first accident.
