2022 MotoGP™ recap: Austria GP – A champion’s charge

Gresini’s Enea Bastianini started on pole for the first time in his premier class career, but it was Bagnaia who took the holeshot at the first corner, while his factory teammate Jack Miller slotted into P3. As tends to be the case, Bagnaia put the foot down and controlled the race out front, while Quartararo had to work his way into the podium places from sixth.
