1. Marc Marquez
Marquez should be the prohibitive favorite seeing as how the six0time MotoGP rider has won a whopping nine races this season including three straight at San Marino, Hungary and Thailand. Marquez has won four straight MotoGP titles and two of the last three races in Japan and will definitely be the man to beat this coming weekend.
2. Fabio Quartararo
After finishing behind his Yamaha teammate Maverick Viñales in FP1, Quartararo took the checkered flag at the FP2 this week. The gifted rookie has established himself as one of the tip riders to watch for the rest of the season and going into 2020 despite the fact that he’s still looking for his maiden win in motorcycle’s premier class. The 20-year-old Frenchman has also recorded a trio of second place finishes at Catalan, San Marino and Thailand.

Viñales won the Dutch TT on Jul 7 and currently sits in fourth place in the MotoGP standings. The 24-year-old from Spain also finished second in Germany while recording a quartet of third place finishes in Spain, Great Britain, San Marino and Thailand.
4. Andrea Dovizioso
The 33-year-old Italian finished second to Marquez in last year’s championship chase and he’s recorded a pair of wins in Qatar and Austria. Dovizioso also finished second in France, the Czech Republic and Hungary while finishing fourth last week in Thailand. Dovizioso also won this event back in 2017
