For the second weekend in a row, MotoGP will be racing in Asia, as the riders and teams will visit Motegi for the fourteenth round of the 2023 season.

Of course, all eyes will be in the fight for the championship, as Francesco Bagnaia holds a slender advantage of just thirteen points over Jorge Martin, after his crash in the Indian Grand Prix. Marco Bezzecchi, who won the last Grand Prix, is also in the championship hunt, 44 points away from his compatriot, at the top.

We will watch plenty of action throughout the weekend, albeit in very different times than we are used to thanks to the racing taking place in Eastern Asia. Various weather conditions are expected to feature on track at Motegi too, with rain expected to make an appearance. For a preview of the Japanese Grand Prix and a full timetable, check out here:
