Memory lane: big teammate rivalries in the MotoGP™ era

There’s some fantastic premier class line-ups in 2023, so let’s take a look back at some of the fiercest teammate rivalries in recent years

As the saying goes in this phenomenal sport: your teammate is your first rival. Most of the time, you have the same equipment at your disposal, meaning the rider sitting on the other side of the box is competing on a level playing field with you.

In 2023, we’ve got some mega line-ups. Reigning World Champion Francesco Bagnaia is joined by Enea Bastianini in an all-Italian Ducati Lenovo Team outfit; Joan Mir moves alongside eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez at Repsol Honda Team; will Franco Morbidelli rediscover his race-winning form to challenge Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ teammate Fabio Quartararo on a weekly basis? And then there’s the tantalising Brad Binder and Jack Miller line-up at Red Bull KTM Factory Racing.
