MotoGP 2021 calendar – how to watch, live stream and highlights

Everything you need to know about how to watch the 2021 MotoGP season including race calendar and TV details.

MotoGP 2021

MotoGP 2021 drama continued in Portugal last weekend as Fabio Quartararo became the first rider to win consecutive races since he achieved the same feat to begin last season.


The Yamaha superstar held off Francesco Bagnaia to claim his second victory from three races, beginning his season in style. He has opened up a healthy 15-point gap at the top of the standings, but as we all know MotoGP can flip in an instant.

Marc Marquez’s return was a fresh ingredient added to the melting pot last time out. He finished seventh in his first race back since the start of the 2020 season.

The six-time world champion will be hungry to claw back the points deficit after missing the opening races, but can he reinvigorate his team for the remainder of 2021?

We’ve rounded up all the details below and will continue to update you with the latest times, dates and broadcast info. We are your home for watching MotoGP on TV in 2021.

RadioTimes.com brings you the complete 2021 MotoGP season calendar below, including key dates, how to watch on TV and more.
