The championship is already decided with consistent points scorer Joan Mir claiming the title last weekend, despite only winning a single race over the course of the whole season.
The Spanish rider’s unusual route to winning the crown was complete after finishing in seventh during last weekend’s Valencia Grand Prix, with the Suzuki star sealing the title after Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Vinales and Alex Rins all failed to reach the podium.
The Algarve International Circuit should provide a fitting final venue for the season finale. A new addition to the MotoGP season, the track is full of thrills and spills, with its only flat section being its kilometer-long final straight.
Sunday’s race will also provide a set of significant farewells, with Andrea Dovizioso on the grid for the last time ahead of a year-long sabbatical and Cal Crutchlow waving goodbye before becoming Yamaha’s test rider.
Valentino Rossi will meanwhile represent Yamaha one final time before the legendary Italian star switches places with Fabio Quartararo at Petronas SRT.
