Francesco Bagnaia will be keen to make it two wins in a row in the 2022 MotoGP season when he participates in the French Grand Prix on May 15.
The Ducati rider narrowly missed out on a podium finish in last year's French MotoGP as he finished fourth having started 16th on the grid.
Bagnaia won the Spanish MotoGP on May 1 which was the most recent race in the 2022 MotoGP season as he boosted his hopes of challenging for the championship.

It was the 25-year-old Italian rider's first podium finish of the current campaign having finished fifth twice in consecutive races. 
Bagnaia was followed by Yamaha rider Fabio Quartararo and Aleix Espargaró of Aprilia respectively in a memorable Spanish MotoGP race.
The reigning MotoGP world champion Quartararo is placed at the top of the 2022 riders' standings and he is followed by Espargaró and Enea Bastianini of Ducati.
Bagnaia - the 2018 Moto2 World Champion - is placed fifth in the standings and he will move into the top three if he secures a victory at the Circuit Bugatti.

“It's a beautiful day. We struggled a lot during testing this season but we never stopped working,” said Bagnaia after winning the Spanish MotoGP. 
“Finally, everything went well this weekend. I'm really happy — we are back to our potential.”
“I was lucky to race in Portugal,” added Bagnaia, who recovered and finished a remarkable eighth at the Portuguese MotoGP on April 24 despite starting from the back of the grid.
“Last year Fabio was unbeatable here (Portuguese MotoGP) but today we did an incredible job.”
Ducati are placed at the top of the Manufacturers' Championship standings and they are followed by Yamaha and Aprilia respectively.
