2022 looks to be quite a curious and wide open championship. Some notes and thoughts of mine:

- What condition will Marc Marquez be in next season - especially his eyes. The current description of his recovery is "adequate". Not terribly confidence inspiring.

- After 2 years of sub-par results, will Honda build a more user friendly bike for the riders of lesser ability than MM93 (ie. all of them)? If they do and Marquez gets back close to full fitness, I think he runs away with another championship.

- Similar to the beginning of 2020, a large percentage of the field are in the final year of their contract for 2022. Will we see a large shift of seats? Plenty of riders are under pressure and a couple of manufacturers as well.

- Ducati currently have an embarrassment of riches with Bastianini doing some incredible things on a 2 year old bike and Jorge Martin looking more than a little bit special. This places a lot of pressure on the shoulders of Jack Miller (who I still don't think Ducati really believe in) despite having arguably his best season. How will he stand up to that pressure and can the coaching of Casey Stoner see him take the next step?

- It was well documented that Joan Mir and Miguel Oliveira were less than 100% happy with Suzuki and KTM respectively last season. If 2022 doesn't start well, could they be headed for pastures new (Honda, Yamaha)?

- After chasing Saudi money (that appears to have turned out a con), team VR46 will be sponsored by Italian banking company Mooney.

- Can Aprilia finally join the big boys and take their first dry win and get themselves off the concessions list?

- Qualifying cutoff has been reduced from the long standing 107% of the pole lap time to 105%.

- Larger brake discs will be available, up to 355mm, particularly for high speed circuits like Red Bull Ring.

- There will be stricter crackdown on rider fitness in the event of head injury (including concussion), chest and abdominal injury and more complex fractures than simple bone breaks.

- 2022 feels like the least hyped rookie class for a while. Curious to see how they fare overall and who will come out on top.

- Gardner will still have a size and weight disadvantage to the majority of the field but hopefully the power and physicality of MotoGP levels that playing field for him. His extra size should help him muscle the bike around to some extent.

- I expect at least one podium from Joel Kelso in 2022. He only has a one year contract in his pocket with his hope of performing and progressing to a big team in 2023. He's hungry.

Marc Marquez is back on a bike.




Will apparently do a circuit test on some sort of road race bike to see how his eyes handle high speed before he's cleared to participate in the first MotoGP test at Sepang.
