2022 MotoGP San Marino GP: Session times, how to watch and more

The San Marino GP at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli marks MotoGP's second visit to Italy following May's Italian GP at Mugello.

It marks the first Misano race since 2017 without home hero Valentino Rossi, who hails from nearby Tavullia, but the event is still expected to generate a big buzz in the surrounding area.

Fabio Quartararo's damage-limiting second at the previous Austrian GP means he comes to Misano - scene of his world title victory last year - 32 points clear of Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro.

Francesco Bagnaia on the Ducati scored a third-straight win on 2022 last time out at the Red Bull Ring, and is now just 44 points off the championship lead coming to an event he won last season.

MotoGP's Misano return will happen without 2020 world champion Joan Mir - a podium finisher at the track in 2020 - after he suffered an ankle fracture at the Austrian GP.

He will be replaced by Suzuki endurance racer Kazuki Watanabe, with the 31-year-old Japanese rider making his MotoGP debut this weekend having previously contested five grands prix in the 250cc/Moto2 class in 2009 and 2010.

Mir's MotoGP future with Honda was secured earlier this week, while Enea Bastianini was announced at the factory Ducati team and RNF Aprilia's all-new 2023 line-up was firmed up.

The talent-outweighing ambition that will kill Ducati’s 2022 MotoGP title hopes

OPINION: For the fourth time in 2022, Francesco Bagnaia has made a costly error while battling other riders. Crashing while chasing one point at the Japanese Grand Prix has lost him eight to a struggling Fabio Quartararo. With just four rounds remaining and a history of errors in high-pressure situations, Bagnaia and Ducati need a serious rethink to stop its best opportunity of a title in 15 years slipping away

Ducati has littered the grid with eight strong motorcycles that has ensured it has had at least one rider stand on the podium at every grand prix in 2022. The drama of the Aragon Grand Prix has thrust Francesco Bagnaia well and truly into title contention with five races to go, and Ducati must now consider utilising a unique strength it has so far been reticent to embrace

Why it won’t just be Marquez’s speed that saves Honda in MotoGP

OPINION: Honda is in the midst of a second winless season in the space of three years. The absence of the injured Marc Marquez has been a major contributing factor, but HRC’s inability to alter its own approach has seen it slide down the order. Marquez returned to the MotoGP paddock in Austria and provided a rallying cry Honda needed to hear.

Prior to the summer break, the 2022 MotoGP title looked like it was Fabio Quartararo’s to lose. But a crash at Assen and the consequential penalty he had to serve last weekend at Silverstone stopped him from capitalising on a main rival’s injury woes, while a resurgence from another, plus the rise of a former team-mate, look set to conspire against the Yamaha rider
