Ducati rider Enea Bastianini will be hoping to win the French MotoGP for the second time in his career this weekend.
Most recent race 
Bastianini remains winless in the 2024 MotoGP season having failed to secure a podium spot at the Spanish MotoGP on 28 April.
The Lenovo Team member started on the ninth grid and he finished fifth which saw him collecting 11 points from the race.
MotoGP title ambitions
The Italian star is still placed third on the 2024 MotoGP Riders' standings having accumulated 70 points from four races.
Bastianini is just five points behind second-placed Francesco Bagnaia of Ducati Lenovo Team as the duo look to catch leader, Jorge Martin of Ducati Prima Pramac Racing.
Why Bastianini could win the 2024 French MotoGP
The 2020 Moto2 World champion has been consistent in the current season having finished in the top five in the first four races. 
Bastianini was crowned 2022 French MotoGP champion and he knows what it takes to win the race at the Bugatti Circuit.
What did he say?
"Surely I need to improve under braking," Bastianini said after finishing fifth at the 2024 Spanish MotoGP.
"This is because I’ve been struggling a bit more compared to recent past and that makes my life a bit harder when it comes to try and overtake other riders. 
"It’s a thing I’ve been noticing in most tracks this year. We were good about the rest and we improved throughout the weekend, so I’m quite happy.”
