Dani Pedrosa’s historic victory in Jerez last time out, where he became a race winner for a record 16th successive season, has closed the top end of field up considerably.

The Yamaha duo of Valentino Rossi (62) and Maverick Vinales (60) lead the way, with Honda team-mates Marc Marquez (58) and Dani Pedrosa (52) not far behind in the standings.

Rossi’s points total is the lowest for the rider leading the premier-class Championship after four races since the current scoring system was introduced in 1993.

The legendary Italian is also the first rider to head the MotoGP standings after four rounds without winning a race since Nicky Hayden in 2006, showing just how competitive the grid is this season.

Pedrossa won in Le Mans back in 2013, after also topping the podium in Jerez the previous round, with the world champion securing back-to-back Honda victories at the circuit a year later.

The Spanish pair will both be confident of overhauling their Yamaha rivals and taking charge of the constructors’ standings on a track that does not appear to suit one factory over another.

Rossi is also a previous winner at the track and Le Mans was the venue for Vinales’ first MotoGP podium in 2016, so with cooler temperatures and a resurfaced track they will expect to be more competitive than in Spain.

Someone else that has previous in Le Mans is Jorge Lorenzo, who is the most successful rider at the venue with six wins to his name and is aiming for three in a row.

The Spartan finally looked competitive on the Ducati in Jerez, a notoriously difficult circuit for the team, and will hope his the start to the European calendar will be what we become accustomed to.

The home crowd also have an exciting Frenchman to cheer, as leading rookie and reigning Moto2 champion Johann Zarco sits sixth in the championship and is leading the way for independent riders.

Moto2 championship leader Franco Morbidelli saw his lead cut at the top of the standings after his imperious form, winning the first three races of the season, came to an abrupt end in Jerez.

Team-mate Alex Marquez looked the man to beat in Spain and after Morbidelli crashed out, took his maiden Moto2 victory and continued the team’s impressive start.

The two could go head-to-head once again in Le Mans and will be joined by a new Brit after Kiefer Racing announced Danny Kent’s replacement - the reigning British Supersport Champion Tarran Mackenzie.

Britain’s Moto3 representation, John McPhee, will look to get his championship charge back on track after crashing out in Jerez and losing ground in the standings.

Leopard Racing’s Joan Mir leads the way after recovering well from his Texas disappointment and a former member of that garage, in the shape of 2015 world champion Danny Kent, will be back on the grid as a wildcard for Red Bull KTM Ajo.
