As 2016’s MotoGP season gets underway we’re set for the usual first race confusion about who’s riding what and which colour scheme they’re using. This Top 10 (ahem, 11…) should help sort that out.

Given that there are 11 teams on the grid, we can cover them all here. Are any of this year’s paint jobs ones that will stick in the memory like legendary colours of the past? We’d hazard that there are no modern equivalents of Rothmans Hondas, Pepsi Suzukis or Marlboro Yamahas here, set to be burned indelibly on the memory, but you might disagree.

From a purely aesthetic perspective, here’s how the 2016 championship lines up:

11th/unplaced: Aspar Ducati. (Eugene Laverty, Yonny Hernandez)

At the time of writing we’re still waiting to catch a glimpse of the final 2016 Aspar paint scheme, so there’s scope for improvement in a few days when the season gets underway in Qatar. During testing, the team has been running unpainted fairings with Power Electronics logos, so a largely white scheme like the one used on the team’s Hondas last year is likely despite the switch to Ducati GP14.2s this season.
