Check out all the best stats from the season just gone in MotoGP™ Fantasy
After a long, hard-fought campaign, Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) is your 2022 MotoGP™ World Champion. It was a fascinating season with twists and turns at every corner, and we cannot wait to see what next year has in store for us.
As the curtain comes down on Grand Prix racing for another year, it also does for MotoGP™ Fantasy, where we can now officially declare the winning players! Before we hand out the awards, let’s take a look at some of the best stats from the season below.
Who made the Valencia GP Dream Team?
Alex Rins bid the perfect goodbye to Suzuki with victory at Circuit Ricardo Tormo, and he is our top weekend rider with 42 points. It was a good day for both factory KTMs too, as Brad Binder’s tally of 39 points sees him take the second Gold Rider place, while Miguel Oliveira is a Silver Rider, bringing in 15.5 points for the team.
Poleman Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) placed third as he collected 13 points for the team. Unsurprisingly with two riders in the Dream Team, KTM were the top constructor with 35 points.
What was the ultimate 2022 Dream Team?
It’s little surprise to see that Bagnaia was this year’s top rider in the game, accumulating a total of 507 points over 20 races. Seven wins across the course of the season helped the Italian reach this tally, and it leaves him 61 points ahead of his closest rival; Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™).
The Frenchman, who conceded his World Championship title to Bagnaia at the weekend, still performed well across the season, amassing 446 points in total. Third in the standings is Brad Binder with 435 points. Three podium successes coupled with numerous Sunday charges from deep on the grid helped the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider become one of the most valuable assets in the game across the past year.
Rounding out the team is Enea Bastianini. The now factory Ducati rider claimed four victories across the year while donning the Gresini colours, and he rounds out the MotoGP™ Fantasy 2022 Dream Team with 426 points.
As for the constructor, Ducati stood out with 638 points in total, with KTM a distant second and Yamaha third.
How did the Official MotoGP™ Fantasy team do?
Across 2022, a variety of guests joined Jack Gorst ahead of each GP and selected the riders they thought would bring in the big points. From riders like Fabio Di Giannantonio (Gresini Racing MotoGP™), Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) and Alex Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP™), to team bosses such as Max Biaggi and Razlan Razali, they all played a part. In the end, the official team collected a respectable 1745 points, placing inside the top 10,000 teams in the MotoGP™ Official League.
So, if the Official MotoGP™ Fantasy team win, who did?
The competition was tough this year, and despite our best efforts and expert guests, we were unable to top the standings. However, three gamers managed to shine more than anyone else!
1st place: MR77 Racing Team – With a grand total of 2,174 points, your winning team comes from Italy, and takes home the top prize of a signed replica helmet from 2021 World Champion Fabio Quartararo. They will also receive a Motul Merchandising package.
2nd place: Team MUKY RS – A Lenovo laptop & MotoGP™ 22 videogame, plus the Motul merchandising package are going the way of this team thanks to a 2162.5 total.
3rd place: Kawagreen – Our final podium finisher, with 2,160.5 points, wins an Official MotoGP™ Tissot Wristwatch and the Motul merchandising package.
Congratulations to all three, and we look forward to having you compete again next year!
