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.
