Remy Gardner is 18 points ahead of Raul Fernandez
Gardner travels to the penultimate race of the year with an 18-point lead over his team-mate Raul Fernandez. Since Fernandez has celebrated seven wins in his rookie season so far and Gardner only four, if the points were equal, Fernandez would win the title.
So Gardner has to collect eight championship points more than Fernandez in Portimao to finally close the sack. If the Australian wins, then his Spanish competitor can only finish third.

Moto3: Foggia was almost 100 points behind
For long stretches of the season, rookie Pedro Acosta (KTM) seemed to be heading for the world title in the Moto3 class without risk. Sergio Garcia (GasGas) recently had to skip two races due to an injury and mathematically buried his World Cup hopes.
Nevertheless, it remains exciting, because Dennis Foggia has been racing to catch up in the past few weeks. On August 8th, Acosta started the second half of the season with his fifth win in Spielberg. Foggia was there 22.
