MotoGP preview: The 'Ring cycle...


Five key questions as the MotoGP rolls into Austria for the dramatic Red Bull Ring:

  1. Ducati to rule again?

Ducati have dominated at the Red Bull Ring since it returned to the calendar in Andrea Iannone clinched Ducati’s
first MotoGP win in almost six years that season.

Since then, Andrea Dovizioso (3), Jorge Lorenzo (1), Pecco Bagnaia (1) and Jorge Martin (1) have all been victorious in red. They’ve done it in style too, with Dovizioso and Lorenzo going bar-to-bar with Marc Marquez in race-long duels. It’s hard to see anything other than a Ducati win.

Luca Marini and Johann Zarco finished inside the top five last year, whilst Marco Bezzecchi is desperate to make up for his Silverstone crash. Alex Marquez is on fast form, too.

2. More Binder magic?
