Looking at the top of the 2022 riders' standings, Quartararo is still leading while Espargaro and Enea Bastianini of Ducati are placed second and third respectively.

"It's incredible I'm really happy to have won at home in front of our fans, it's really great," Bagnaia said after winning the Italian MotoGP. 
“I think the team and I deserve this win because we worked a lot. The start was not the best but I am happy to win the race. 
"It's something I have always dreamed of because winning in Mugello is incredible. Misano is my home grand prix, but this one is the Italian Grand Prix. It's one of the toughest tracks ever, so it's great."
Ducati are placed at the top of the Manufacturers' Championship standings and they are followed by Yamaha and Aprilia respectively.
