  • 2016: Marc Márquez

  • 2014: Marc Márquez
  • 2013: Marc Márquez
  • 2012: Jorge Lorenzo

Jorge Lorenzo was knocking on the door during the formative years of his Moto GP career and the Spaniard was runner-up in 2006 and 2007. However, he really came to the fore in 2010 when achieving a maiden victory on a Yamaha bike, while there were also triumphs in 2012 and 2015.

Spanish motorcyclists have a strong record in this competition and Marc Márquez has recorded six title triumphs on a Honda bike, with the 28-year-old having largely dominated the landscape until recently. He finished seventh in the 2021 championship to indicate that his time at the top might be over, although few will match his magnificent achievements.

Can Fabio Quartararo Land 2022 Moto GP Title?

Fabio Quartararo claimed a first ever win in 2021 and it might be that the Frenchman is the 2022 Moto GP betting favourite. The Yamaha driver recorded 278 points to claim gold in the championship and it could be that the rider is even better when he challenges against his rivals.

Quartararo was consistently strong during the early part of the 2021 championship, with victories coming in Doha and Portugal, while he landed the spoils in Italy and was also able to secure the chequered flag in the Netherlands. A win in the British Moto GP helped him pull away from the crowd and he could be the one to beat.

Francesco Bagnaia Looks Strong on Ducati Bike

Francesco Bagnaia was the main rival to Quartararo during the 2021 season and the pair finished well clear of the chasing pack. The Italian didn’t record a single win in his first fourteen races and finished well down the order in the British Moto GP. However, he enjoyed a fantastic renaissance and four of the next six races saw him claim maximum points.

Joan Mir won the 2020 title and finished third in 2021, so the Spaniard knows what’s required to get over the line when it comes to the Moto GP Championship. Jack Miller is an exciting talent who rides for Ducati and Johann Zarco comes from the same constructor.

2021 MotoGP World Championship betting odds – can anyone stop Fabio?

We’re a few races into the 2021 MotoGP World Championship and a pattern is starting to emerge, with the leading riders accumulating points from the last few events and there have been races in Doha, Qatar, Portugal, France, Spain and Italy, with the MotoGP betting odds available for each race.

Fabio Quartararo Looks to Be Rider to Beat

Fabio Quartararo has never won a MotoGP World Championship, although the Frenchman looks highly dangerous this year and it appears that the other riders are struggling to be as consistent as the Yamaha pilot who looks set to be enjoying a breakthrough season.

Quartararo is only 22 years of age, although he has scooped a maximum points victory when it has come to Doha, Portugal and Italy, although his lead is relatively slender at the moment and there are a number of Ducati drivers who are currently breathing down his neck.

The bookies do think that the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP participant is the one to beat, although perhaps betting odds of 1.57 looks a touch short considering that there are several others who will fancy the title.

Zarco, Miller and Bagnaia Could Yet Challenge for F1 Title

Johann Zarco has never won a MotoGP World Championship although the 30-year-old could be a relatively late bloomer and there have been some impressive performances during the 2021 calendar, with the Pramac Racing rider currently trading at a best price 5/1 to claim the championship.

Zarco has strangely not won a race during the 2021 MotoGP season, although four runner-up appearances means that he’s bang in contention and will now look to continue appearing on the podium consistently enough to get himself over the line.

As for Jack Miller, the Ducati Lenovo Team rider has plenty in his favour as he sits third in the championship standings at the time of writing, with the Australian having struggled to get going in Qatar and Doha, while a retirement in Portugal had the rider well off the pace.

However, victories in Spain and France coupled with third place in Catalonia means that we have to give some thought that he could be in the final reckoning, with his team-mate not far behind in the standings.

Francesco Bagnaia is a talented Italian who finished well down the pecking order when landing sixteenth place at the 2020 championship, although it appears as though the 24-year-old is going to achieve a far higher position this time around.

The 2015 season of MotoGP, the highest level of bike racing in the world, started back on the 29th March in Qatar and after five fascinating and somewhat surprising races we look set for one of the most exciting championships in recent memory. Our MotoGP outright winner preview gives you the best odds on whichever rider you fancy, as well as our own predictions and tips to help you choose, so whether you’re new to the sport or a MotoGP veteran, everything you need to secure a tidy profit is right here.

When the season began Marc Marquez, the 2014 and 2013 champion, was the clear favourite for a hat-trick of world titles. The young Spaniard seemed an unstoppable force in the world of racing and many were predicting an era of total dominance. The bookies were running scared and Marquez was a huge favourite in the outright betting with few doubting he would win the 2015 championship.

With almost one third of the season gone, Marquez remains the favourite with the odds men but there is virtually nothing between him and the two men behind him in the betting. Marquez can be backed at odds of 6/4 whilst Jorge Lorenzo is on offer at 7/4, the same betting odds as Valentino Rossi.

Marquez has enjoyed, or not as the case may be, a hugely disappointing start to the campaign and despite claiming pole in America, Argentina and last time out at Le Mans, he has managed just one race win to date, in America. Fifth in Qatar, fourth in the most recent race in France and a retirement in Argentina have left the Spaniard down in fourth place in the championship and there is clearly a lot of work to be done on and off the track.

As the new kid on the block has faltered, veteran Rossi has been a model of consistency, with two wins and three podiums from the five races to date. Rossi, who we tipped for the title at odds of 9/2 in our first look at the outright winner betting before the season began, has so much experience that he just has to be respected. The Italian won seven MotoGP titles between 2002 and 2009 and is a legend of the sport and now he has his nose in front he will take some stopping. He was second last year and whilst Marquez may yet catch him, given the current odds we simply have to make Rossi our main betting tip for outright success.

Of course, Lorenzo, who currently leads Marquez by 18 points and has won the last two GPs, would disagree with our prediction and there are sure to be some who will back the 2010 and 2012 champion. Lorenzo finished third last year and whilst there is a very real chance he may have what it takes, of the three men at the top of the betting, he is our least preferred option.

So, if you, like us, believe that age is just a number and that the Yamahas have the edge this season our betting tip is a simple one: back Rossi to be the outright MotoGP winner in 2015!
