Three races are left to determine who will be the 2022 MotoGP rider’s world champion, and it’s a two-rider race.
Bagnaia is on quite the run of success for the Ducati Team, playing a significant role in helping Ducati win the 2022 MotoGP constructors world championship. Bagnaia needs to have a strong finish at Phillip Island to move closer to the individual title.
Bagnaia is two points behind reigning champion Quartararo of the Yamaha team that currently sits third in the constructor’s championship. Quartararo and Yamaha need to be better over the final three Grand Prix races than they have been recently.
In his last seven races, Quartararo has only managed one podium and four points finishes along with two retirements. That will not be good enough to hold off Bagnaia and Ducati for the rider’s championship.
MotoGP Australian Grand Prix at a Glance
The MotoGP Australian Grand Prix takes place at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. One lap around the Grand Prix circuit at Phillip Island is 12 turns over 2.762 miles (4.445 km).
The fastest laps at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit have all been set during the 2018 and 2019 editions of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Maverick Vińales (1:28.49) and Quartararo (1:29.04) clocked the top two fastest laps at Phillips Island in 2019 on Yamaha machinery, while eight-time Australian GP winner Valentino Rossi was timed at 1:29.24 on the same Yamaha machinery in 2019.
Notably, the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit was flooded on Thursday, ahead of the first MotoGP practice session. Weather like this will change the track conditions and could affect the first practice sessions. However, the weather looks much better for qualifying and the Grand Prix.

Momentum is something real but intangible in a sporting context. You don’t need to look at the rider’s world championship to notice that the momentum is swinging toward the Ducati Team’s riders, especially Bagnaia, who has either finished on the podium or retired in the last 12 Grand Prix, including six wins.
We are picking Bagnaia to win the Australian Grand Prix and move into the lead of the MotoGP rider’s World Championship.
