With a masterclass in Germany by Quartararo and Honda running an absolute stinker, the standings are looking stacked in favor of the Frenchman. However, the Assen TT is no ordinary race, and at the Cathedral of Speed, anything can happen. To catch all the action, here's how to watch a FREE 2022 MotoGP live stream no matter where you are in the world.
Last season, El Diablo roared to his maiden title off the back of five GP wins, but Marquez's return to fitness and form, and that sensational late charge from Francesco Bagnaia makes this one of the most eagerly anticipated seasons in years.
Pecco, flying the flag for Ducati Lenovo, had Quartararo sweating when he won four of the final six races of last season, while the other two went to Repsol Honda's Marquez, who at last looks ready to challenge for his seventh title after two injury-plagued seasons.
Suzuki Ecstar's Joan Mir remains the stealthy master of consistency who can never be written off, a quality that Bagnaia's teammate Jack Miller could do with honing in order to mount his own title tilt.
With 21 races worth of breakneck sprints and hair-raising turns to look forward to, follow our guide as we explain how to get a 2022 MotoGP live stream from anywhere.

What is MotoGP?
New to the sport? Allow us to bring you up to speed on MotoGP.
The competition has been around since 1949, making it the oldest motorsport championship in the world. The event typically traverses the globe, with 21 races planned for the 2022 season.
A Grand Prix event takes place over three days, with the first two days devoted to Free Practice sessions and qualifying races, and the Grand Prix itself staged on Sundays.
MotoGP is the absolute apex of motorcycle racing and all the big name manufacturers take part, including the likes of Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and KTM. All the machines in this class top out at 1,000cc but that's more than enough power for these finely tuned monster machines, which have reached top speeds of 362.4 km/h under both Johann Zarco and Brad Binder.
Just below MotoGP is Moto2, for 600cc engines, and Moto3 for 250cc engines, both of which have a lower age minimum of 16 (MotoGP riders must be at least 18-years-old to qualify), acting as a feeding line for new riders. There's also now a MotoE competition for electric motorcycle racing.
The 2022 MotoGP is the 74th edition of the championship and follows on from last year's event where Yamaha's Fabio Quartararo took the top spot, followed by Ducati's Francesco Bagnaia in second and Suzuki's Joan Mir in third.
