A year later, the situation has changed little. the discipline still had to deal with many cancellations events of America, Asia and Oceania. 15 of the 18 races in 2021 have been linked to the European continent, with the exception of the first double round held in Qatar and the competition in Austin in the USA, which took place last October.

After two seasons disrupted by the pandemic, the MotoGP caravan intends to put its wheels back on the ground in all its usual destinations. By 2022, the conviction of returning to normal life translates to a particularly busy schedule, full 21 Grands Prix, unheard of (reduced to 20 dates after May 25 and the announcement of the cancellation of the Finnish Grand Prix). There is no discipline yet never surpassed the 19-race threshold in a single seasonthe record number was reached twice, in 2018 and 2019. The latest exercise was originally expected to host 20 events to date, before the decision was made to reduce that total to 18 due to the public health crisis.

On July 10, the discipline planned to organize a race in Finland for the first time since 1982. The KimyRing event was originally supposed to be christened in 2020, but the vagaries of the health crisis have finally jeopardized the certification of this exciting circuit. This is the third year in a rowtherefore, the possibility of returning to Finland is rejected, but this time, not related to the health crisis. Indeed, in a press release issued on May 25, 2022, Dorna justifies the cancellation by saying consequences of the conflict between Russia and Ukraineboth in terms of security risks in the region and because of the delay caused by the completion of the alignment.

The racing series on the Old Continent the Aragon Grand Prix will end on September 18. It should be followed by four non-European trips: to Japan, Thailand, Australia and Malaysia.
