Fabio Quartararo is the current Riders' Championship leader.

The 2021 FIM MotoGP World Championship is the premier class of the 73rd F.I.M. Road Racing World Championship season. Joan Mir began the season as defending riders' champion.

Season summary

Joan Mir and Team Suzuki Ecstar began the season as defending riders' and teams' champions respectfully, while Ducati started as defending constructors' champion. Ducati and Yamaha became early season favourites after winning all the first five races of the season (rounds 1-3 for Yamaha riders Maverick Viñales and Fabio Quartararo, rounds 4-5 for Ducati rider Jack Miller) and locking out all but one of the 15 podium positions between them. Perennial title favourite Marc Márquez made his return to the series at the third round in Portugal, after missing nearly the entirety of the 2020 season as well as the first two rounds in Qatar due to injury recovery.[1] By the sixth round in Italy, Quartararo became the first clear title favourite of the season after four consecutive pole positions and achieving his third win of the season, extending his championship lead to 24 points.[2] At the German Grand Prix, Marc Márquez made his first return to the podium since Valencia 2019 with a win, extending his unbroken streak of victories at the Sachsenring to 11 in a row, dating back to 2010 in the 125cc class.[3] With the win, Márquez ended Honda's longest win drought since their full-time return to the pinacle of Grand Prix racing in 1982 at 581 days. At the Dutch TT, Quartararo claimed his fourth win of the season to extend his lead in the rider's championship heading into the summer break, with a 34-point-advantage over his nearest rival and compatriot Johann Zarco.[4] Returning from the summer pause in Styria, rookie Jorge Martín translated his second career pole position into his maiden race win in just his sixth MotoGP race start,[5] and claimed the first victory for Pramac Racing since their entry to the class in 2002.[6] At the Austrian Grand Prix, KTM rider Brad Binder took his second career victory in a flag-to-flag race in the rain, after electing to stay out on slicks with three laps remaining, while the other five riders of the lead group entered the pits to switch to wet tires.[7] At an unseasonably cold British round, Quartararo took a dominant win while his nearest rivals faltered, extending his championship lead to 65 points with six rounds remaining.[8] In Aragon, Ducati factory rider Francesco Bagnaia led from pole position to take his inaugural MotoGP victory[9] and shortened Quartararo's championship advantage as the Frenchman struggled with tires, dropping from third on the grid to finish eighth.[10] At Misano, Bagnaia repeated his feat to win from pole for the second consecuitive race, cutting the Frenchman's lead to just 48 points with four rounds remaining.[11] In Austin, Marquéz topped the podium for the second time of the year, ahead of chief title contenders Quartararo and Bagnaia. With the win, Marquéz extended his dominance over the Circuit of the Americas, having won 7 of 8 total MotoGP visits to the track.[12]

COVID-19 pandemic

As with the previous season, the 2021 championship was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to the cancellation or postponement of many races. As it became clear local pandemic conditions would not allow for a running of the Argentine or American Grands Prix as planned, both races were postponed and replaced with a second round in Qatar and a round in Portugal.[13] The return of the Finnish Grand Prix was delayed by a further year, as Finnish race officials did not wish to hold their inaugural event without fans in the grandstands, and the race was replaced with a second round in Austria.[14] The Japanese Grand Prix was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic situation in the country and the resulting travel complications and logistical restrictions, replaced by the new date for the American Grand Prix.[15] The Australian Grand Prix was cancelled in early July, due to the paddock's inability to meet the Australian government's requirement for a two-week quarantine for all foreign entries to the country, which would introduce too large of a disturbance to the MotoGP schedule.[16][17] With a mid-summer resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Thailand, that country's Grand Prix planned for mid-October was also cancelled for the second year in a row.[18] By mid-August, the rising number of infections in Malaysia caused the cancellation of the Grand Prix in that country (replaced by a second round at the Misano circuit),[19] meaning no championship rounds would be held east of Qatar for the second consecutive year.

  • Tito Rabat replaced Jorge Martín for the Spanish and French Grands Prix, while the rookie recovered from injuries sustained in a Saturday morning crash at the Portuguese round.[26]
  • Ducati test rider Michele Pirro replaced Martín for the Italian Grand Prix.[27]
  • Álex Rins missed the Catalan Grand Prix after suffering a broken arm prior to the race. He was not replaced for the round.[53]
  • Franco Morbidelli missed several races after injuring his left knee in a training accident.[54] He was replaced by Garrett Gerloff for the Dutch round,[44] Cal Crutchlow for the Styrian and Austrian rounds, and Jake Dixon for the British[46] and Aragon rounds.
  • Lorenzo Savadori underwent surgery after his crash in the Styrian round. He missed the succeeding Austrian round and was not replaced.[55]
  • Yamaha withdrew Maverick Viñales from the Austrian Grand Prix, citing "unexplained irregular operation of the motorcycle" during the Styrian Grand Prix.[56] Yamaha subsequently terminated his contract on August 20, thereby removing Vinales' entry in the championship.[57] He was replaced by Cal Crutchlow for the British[40] and Aragon rounds. Franco Morbidelli was subsequently promoted to the factory team as their championship rider for the rest of the season and the future, reuniting Morbidelli with former Petronas SRT teammate Fabio Quartararo.[41] Andrea Dovizioso eventually returned from his sabbatical and returned to MotoGP, replacing Morbidelli as SRT's championship rider for the rest of the season.[58]
  • Maverick Viñales returned to MotoGP from the Aragon Grand Prix onwards with Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, replacing Lorenzo Savadori as the championship rider for the remainder of the season, with Savadori returning to his previous role as the test/reserve rider.[59] Maverick was contracted to ride for Aprilia in 2022.[60]
  • Maverick Viñales sat out of the Grand Prix of the Americas following the death of his cousin, Dean Berta Viñales, during the first round at Jerez in the 2021 Supersport 300 World Championship the previous week. He was not replaced for the round.[61]

Calendar changes

  • The Finnish Grand Prix was reintroduced to the calendar after a 38-year absence. The venue hosting the round will be the new Kymi Ring, instead of the Tampere Circuit used in 1962 and 1963 or the Imatra Circuit which hosted the round until 1982. The Finnish Grand Prix had been included on the 2020 calendar, but the inaugural race was cancelled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The Czech Republic Grand Prix was initially left off the provisional calendar, as the circuit requires mandatory resurfacing for safety compliance, and it was unclear if the necessary work could be completed in time for its typical schedule date in early August. The 11th round of the championship was therefore left open as provisionally pending.[80] On 8 December 2020, Brno city councillors opted out of the 2021 calendar, citing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[81] It will mark the first absence of a Grand Prix in Brno since 1992. The mayor of Brno hopes for the return of the championship in 2022.[82]

Calendar changes as a reaction to COVID-19 pandemic

  • With the uncertainty of the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, championship organizer Dorna elected in November 2020 to nominate three "Reserve Grand Prix Venues" which could be used in the event that local virus containment measures or regulations force the cancellation of a planned Grand Prix.[83]
  • On 22 January 2021, Dorna significantly updated the provisional calendar including the following changes:[13]
    • The Argentine and American Grands Prix would be postponed due to the COVID-19 situation in both countries, with potential rescheduling for the final quarter of 2021.
    • A double-header would open the season in Qatar on 28 March and 4 April, followed by Portugal as the third round.
    • The provisionally pending race created by the absence of the Czech Grand Prix was removed.
    • The potential Russian Grand Prix was removed from the reserve list, leaving Indonesia as the sole Reserve Grand Prix Venue.
  • On 14 May the Finnish Grand Prix was cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation, and the Styrian Grand Prix would replace it on the date of 8 August. It was also confirmed that the Indonesian Grand Prix would remain a reserve Grand Prix in the 2021 calendar, subject to circuit homologation.[14]
  • On 23 June the Japanese Grand Prix was cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation, with the previously postponed Grand Prix of the Americas taking its place in the calendar. This also led to the postponement of the Thailand Grand Prix by one week.[15]
  • On 6 July the Australian Grand Prix was cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation, with the Malaysian Grand Prix brought forward by a week to replace it on the date of 24 October. In addition, a new Grand Prix, the Algarve Grand Prix, was introduced, which is scheduled to be held on 7 November.[74]
  • On 21 July the Thailand Grand Prix was cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions in the country.[86]
  • On 19 August the Malaysian Grand Prix was cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions in the country. For its replacement, a second Grand Prix at Misano will be introduced, having the same schedule as the cancelled Malaysian round.[87]
  • On 11 September the final championship calendar comprising 18 Grands Prix was confirmed. The Emilia Romagna and Rimini Riviera Grand Prix will return as the second Grand Prix at Misano, now having the shortened name of Emilia Romagna motorcycle Grand Prix. The previously postponed Argentine Grand Prix was also cancelled.[73]
