MotoGP| Report cards of the 2021 season

The 2021 MotoGP season ended almost a month ago and it’s time for report cards.

YAMAHA:
Yamaha’s season was half positive: on the one hand there is the Vinales situation, then replaced by Franco Morbidelli, on the other Fabio Quartararo, world champion. Rating: 9.
Fabio Quartararo perfect in his season, always at the top of the standings. Rating: 10.
Franco Morbidelli positive start, too bad for the knee injury, then the transition to the official, not easy. Overall rating: 8.5.

DUCATI:
Good season if we look at the final standings regarding the constructors’ championship, it is a pity that there were 6 bikes compared to 2 or 4 of the other manufacturers. Rating: 9.5
Francesco Bagnaia is perfect, perhaps a few mistakes too many like the second race at Misano, but at least he is vice world champion. Rating: 9.5
Jack Miller, overall, good. Rating: 8

HONDA:
has shown that without Marc Marquez it is difficult to achieve important results. Rating: 7.
Marc Marquez did his best by taking home 3 victories in a difficult season for him. Rating: 8.
Pol Espargaro took some time to get used to the new bike but managed to put it on the podium in the Emilia Romagna GP. Rating: 7.5.

KTM:
the Austrian house disappointed a lot especially in the second half of the season. Rating: 6.

good season for the Noale manufacturer, we finally see it on the podium. Rating: 8.
Aleix Espargaro, in the races he concluded, always in the top 10 with a very important podium in the British GP. Rating: 8.5.
Maverick Vinales with Aprilia only managed to enter the top 10 on two occasions and evaluating only this period, vote: 6.

SUZUKI:
season below expectations, after a winning 2020. Rating: 7.5
Joan Mir was difficult for him to reconfirm as world champion, he tried, finishing several times on the podium but never winning. Rating: 8-
Alex Rins only one podium for him and five retirements, perhaps a season to forget. Rating: 5.5.

PETRONAS:
difficult season with Valentino Rossi who had to get used to a new bike and, first, Franco Morbidelli injured then the riders who replaced him such as Jake Dixon, Cal Crutchlow, Garrett Gerloff and finally Andrea Dovizioso did their best. Rating: 6.
Valentino Rossi unfortunately a disappointing season for him, with only 44 points. Rating: 6.5
Andrea Dovizioso after a year off is back to racing on a 2019 MotoGP, inherited from Franco Morbidelli. For those few races he has done he almost always scored points. Rating: 7.

PRAMAC:
excellent independent team, the first place in the team ranking proved it. Rating: 9.
Jorge Martin perfect rookie, he managed to get four poles and a victory. Grade 10-.
Johann Zarco certainly matured compared to last year and was also the best independent driver. Rating: 9.

ESPONSORAMA:gone
good season for a team that will benext year. Rating: 6.
Enea Bastianini good season especially towards the end where he gave his best and managed to win two podiums. Rating: 8.5.

KTM TECH3:
poor management of the riders that has spilled over to their results on the track. Rating: 5.
Danilo Petrucci below expectations, or maybe not, with a different bike. He gave a lot to this category, especially in the period with the factory Ducati, but he will certainly make us have fun in the Dakar as well. Rating: 6.
Iker Lecuona brought to MotoGP too early and this meant that the results did not come as hoped. Rating: 5.5.
