Championship leader Marc Marquez will have fond memories of this track, after securing his third world title here last season, and will be looking to close in on his fourth in five years with victory again this weekend.

The Spaniard takes a 16-point lead into the first flyaway of the season but does not boast an imperious record in Motegi, like he does at many other venues on the calendar, claiming just one premier class triumph.

His closest challenger, Andrea Dovizioso, finished on the podium in last season’s Japanese GP and the characteristics of this circuit (hard braking and acceleration) suggest he will go well again this time around.

With just three races to go after Motegi, the maths really begins to come into play for the title but could it be the team-mates of the standings leaders’ that take the headlines?

Both Honda Repsol’s Dani Pedrosa and Ducati rider Jorge Lorenzo have three race wins apiece here and with slim chances of claiming the crown, they will be going all out to top the podium.
