It’s a piece of MotoGP history that will be written at Le Mans. The Bugatti circuit hosts, on Sunday May 14, the 1,000th race in the history of the discipline, the fifth round of the 2023 season, for the Grand Prix de France. After Jorge Martin’s surprise victory in the sprint race, championship leader Francesco Bagnaia, third on Saturday, will try to turn his pole position into a third success this season.

At home, Johann Zarco and Fabio Quartararo will try to seize the slightest opportunity to shine in front of their home crowd. The first, who will start 9th, showed pace during the sprint race, during which he gained three positions. The Grand Prix promises to be more complicated for the Yamaha rider, 13th on the grid, who fell during the sprint race a few laps from the finish.
