What do Bagnaia and Martin need to do to lift the crown?

We run through all the different scenarios that would allow Pecco Bagnaia or Jorge Martin to be crowned MotoGP™ World Champion this Sunday in Valencia

The fight for the 2023 title has been a rollercoaster ride that has remained unpredictable throughout, and with the possibility of being crowned the 75th MotoGP™ Champion, the stakes are as high as ever. 

Today's action in the Tissot Sprint has turned up the heat in the title race with the gap now down to just 14 points after Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) lost on crucial points as he could only manage P5 with Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) taking the victory. Either rider could take it on Sunday so let's take a look at the permutations heading in the final Grand Prix of 2023.

• He finishes in the top five,
• He finishes P6, P7, P8, P9, P10 and Martin doesn’t win,
• He finishes P11, P12, P13, P14 and Martin doesn’t finish better than P3
• He finishes P15 or fails to score any points and Martin doesn’t finish on the podium.
