Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) goes into 2023 with the champions plate on his bike and a target on his back, as he showed an incredibly strong preseason test at the Portimao Circuit. Priced at $3.5m, his form is an invaluable asset to your MotoGP™ Fantasy team.
Whilst Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) didn’t enjoy the preseason quite as much onboard his Yamaha M1, the flying Frenchman is always a safe bet in Portugal having taken 3rd spot in the test and tasted victory at Portimao in 2022. Priced at $3.4m, Quartararo brings an element of risk if you’re gunning for glory, but saving $0.1m could give you the opportunity for a more all-rounded team.
Looking for that 2nd Gold Rider can prove to be a tricky task, but there are some strong options on the table. You can never discount the Beast Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo Team) from bringing home a solid result, who will compete in Ducati red for the first time. Equally, Aprilia’s Captain Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) will be hungry to taste the champagne again in 2023. Both riders proving solid options after their preseason efforts and both are available for 3.2m.
Equally, if you’re looking to hold back on the spending, there are some solid options in the satellite teams, with the two Prima Pramac Racing riders, Jorge Martin and Johann Zarco looking strong for $2.6m and $2.5m.
