Why Rins should have never been doubted

Alex Rins came into 2020 as one of the MotoGP title favourites with the emerging Suzuki package, only for injury to put him on the back foot. But, in one of the most unpredictable campaigns, can the Spaniard stake his claim again?

MotoGP celebrated its eighth different winner in 10 races in 2020 in Sunday's Aragon Grand Prix. To put this into some kind of perspective, Formula 1 has had eight different winners since 2018. It's also the second time in five years so many riders have won grands prix in the premier class, when nine ultimately managed to succeed from the 18 races in 2016.

That campaign marked Suzuki's first win in MotoGP since 2007 and the first since it returned in 2015, when Maverick Vinales dominated the British Grand Prix. Since then, it has won three more grands prix - the latest coming last Sunday at Aragon - and all of them at the hands of Alex Rins.
