For 2019, the MotoGP World Championship saw a new kid on the block, former Spanish CEV Champion, Fabio Quartararo, who joined Franco Morbidelli in the brand new Petronas Yamaha Team.

Their first season together has seen the young French rider claim 6 pole positions and stand on the podium a total of 7 times, narrowly missing out on a few race victories.

The 2019 Independent Riders Championship went right down to the wire, with Pramac Racing‘s Jack Miller taking the fight to the final round of the season in Valencia.
