Solid couple of days working with my crew. Always hard to see the fruits of your labour in testing but we have been working very hard. Thanks so much to all my crew, and all @krt_worldsbk for the big effort these days. Back testing again next week in Barcelona. Vamos!

New challenges on the horizon for MotoGP™ Fantasy 2023

Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) goes into 2023 with the champions plate on his bike and a target on his back, as he showed an incredibly strong preseason test at the Portimao Circuit. Priced at $3.5m, his form is an invaluable asset to your MotoGP™ Fantasy team.

Whilst Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) didn’t enjoy the preseason quite as much onboard his Yamaha M1, the flying Frenchman is always a safe bet in Portugal having taken 3rd spot in the test and tasted victory at Portimao in 2022. Priced at $3.4m, Quartararo brings an element of risk if you’re gunning for glory, but saving $0.1m could give you the opportunity for a more all-rounded team.

Looking for that 2nd Gold Rider can prove to be a tricky task, but there are some strong options on the table. You can never discount the Beast Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo Team) from bringing home a solid result, who will compete in Ducati red for the first time. Equally, Aprilia’s Captain Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) will be hungry to taste the champagne again in 2023. Both riders proving solid options after their preseason efforts and both are available for 3.2m.

Equally, if you’re looking to hold back on the spending, there are some solid options in the satellite teams, with the two Prima Pramac Racing riders, Jorge Martin and Johann Zarco looking strong for $2.6m and $2.5m.

Can Alex Rins emulate Valentino Rossi in Portimao?

The #42 now jumps aboard the RC213V for 2023 with the mission of playing a crucial role in restoring Honda to their former glory, and at Round 1 in Portimao, he has a chance of carving out some MotoGP™ history. If Rins were to take victory this weekend, he would become the first rider since Valentino Rossi to win consecutive races with different manufacturers.

History beckons for Bagnaia and the #1 plates

Emulating Doohan is a tremendous challenge, and since the Australian’s on track heroics, a hoodoo of sorts has befallen the #1 plate. Riders such as Alex Criville, Kenny Roberts Jr, Nicky Hayden, Casey Stoner, and Jorge Lorenzo, all of them enshrined as MotoGP™ Legends, could not string together two consecutive titles wearing the coveted #1. Others, such as Rossi, Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team), Joan Mir (Repsol Honda Team), or Fabio Quartararo, opted to wear their iconic personal numbers: #46, #93, #36, and #20, respectively. Despite being strongly associated with #63, Bagnaia couldn’t pass up the opportunity to wear the Champion’s #1, and who could blame him?
