The noises that emanated from Yamaha's pre-season testing weren't entirely positive, which means the pressure's on Quartararo right from the start. His old stablemate Maverick Viñales won the corresponding race a year ago, but is he settled, and are Aprilia ready to compete?
It's been nearly a decade since Marc Marquez last won here, but his return to fitness has created a buzz and a sense of anticipation for something truly spectacular. Francesco Bagnaia, meanwhile, was the hottest rider on the grid at the close of last season and took a podium here 12 months ago. Will he hit the ground running?
There are so many questions, and some of them are about to be answered. Whoever you're rooting for, follow our guide below as we explain how to watch the Grand Prix of Qatar and get a MotoGP live stream from anywhere.

MotoGP Qatar is being shown on a delayed broadcast on CNBC. The race starts at 10am ET / 7am PT on Sunday morning, but is being televised at 1.30pm ET / 10.30am PT.
If you have the channel on cable, you'll be able to stream the action directly through the CNBC website (opens in new tab).
If you don't, over-the-top streaming service fuboTV carries CNBC (and NBC, which is also showing some of this season's races), along with more than 100 other channels, and better still, it also offers a FREE fuboTV trial (opens in new tab).
If delayed broadcasts don't cut it for you, you can instead sign up for MotoGP's own in-house streaming service, MotoGP VideoPass (opens in new tab).
A subscription costs €139.99 (roughly $160) for the full 2022 season, and the service works across laptops and iOS and Android phones and tablets, though smart TV compatibility is limited.
If you're abroad right now, you can still tune in just like you would at home with the help of a good VPN (opens in new tab).
