A dramatic weekend ensured the 2023 season started with a bang, and these are all the hottest topics from the weekend

It was certainly a dramatic return for the MotoGP™ World Championship. There is still plenty of fallout from the weekend which saw the debut of the Tissot Sprint on Saturday, while Sunday’s race left us with plenty of talking points.

One of the major talking points from the weekend was the crash that saw Marc Marquez lose control of his RC213V and inadvertently take out home hero Miguel Oliveira just a few laps into Sunday’s race. Marquez has since apologised to the Portuguese rider, but that hasn’t stopped him from picking up an injury, a sanction and being in the ire of some of his rivals.
