Among those eager to end Marquez’s dominance will be the two French riders at the top of the world championship, Fabio Quartararo (Monster Yamaha) starting round 8 with a reduced 14-point lead over Johann Zarco after his ‘wardrobe malfunction’ in Barcelona.

The Pramac rider is hotly followed in the standings by factory team riders Jack Miller and Francesco Bagnaia, with reigning champion Joan Mir the top Suzuki in fifth but 37 points behind Quartararo.
