2022 MotoGP Austrian Grand Prix: Full UK television schedule

The second half of the 2022 season is in full swing now after hostilities resumed two weeks ago at the British Grand Prix, with Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia reigniting his title tilt with a fourth win of the year.

He is now just 49 points behind Fabio Quartararo, who was only able to swell his points lead by one over an injured Aleix Espargaro at Silverstone after a long lap penalty meant he could do no better than eighth on his Yamaha.

The Red Bull Ring will be the scene of the latest round of the season, and will be notable for its change in layout after a chicane at Turn 2 was added to help improve safety at the circuit following several major incidents in recent years.

This weekend also marks the return of Marc Marquez to the MotoGP paddock since he went for a fourth major operation on his right arm, with the six-time world champion helping his Honda team in Austria from the sidelines.
