Viewers on DStv can look forward to the 17th round of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship, the Grand Prix of Thailand, live from the Chang International Circuit in Buriram on the morning of Sunday 2 October.

SuperSport is definitely your #HomeOfSport and the ultimate destination for motorsport fans.

The previous round in Japan this past weekend saw Riders’ Championship leader Fabio Quartararo of Monster Energy Yamaha extend his advantage at the top to 18 points despite only coming home in eighth place.

This was because nearest chaser Francesco Bagnaia of Lenovo Ducati suffered a retirement, while third-placed Aleix Espargaro of Aprilia finished 16th. The race winner in Motegi was Bagnaia’s teammate, Jack Miller, with the Australian picking up his first win of the season.

Miller, who is leaving Ducati for KTM at the end of the 2022 campaign, admitted that he was sick and tired of justifying his place on the Italian team: “We’ve done a lot of things here in Ducati that signing up I didn’t know was possible,” he explained.

“Like, we didn’t know what the bike was going to be like, we didn’t know what anything was going to be like. The bike was still building in that stage, we were building towards the bike we have now – but it definitely wasn’t on the level of what we have now.”

He added, “But, yeah… I’m not going to sit here and lie to you and say everything was rosy. I was getting tired of one-year contracts. Having to justify myself in Qatar [in the season opener] every single year, why I deserve the job, why I deserve to have my position and getting questioned by not only the media- everybody. I was sick and tired of justifying why I should be wanted.”

The Japan race also saw South African Brad Binder put in a great ride to come home in the second spot, while Pramac Ducati’s Jorge Martin was third, and pole-sitter Marc Marquez defied a lack of pace on his Repsol Honda to finish fourth – a major step forward in his recovery from surgery to a career-threatening arm injury.

“I’m really happy because it was a solid race, but the most important thing is that I didn’t feel pain during the whole race,” Marquez said. “I felt like the arm was lazy. I felt tired in the end, but I didn’t feel pain and for me, that is the most important.

“For that reason, I was also able to attack Oliveira. It was a long time ago since I had the feeling to attack somebody in the last laps because [always] the pain was there and it was difficult to even keep concentration in the past. But today I didn’t feel pain, I just felt tired, but everything was under control.”
