After missing out by the smallest margins in Spain, Alvaro Diaz can be crowned Champion in Race 1 in Portugal

The title battle in the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship will head down to the final round at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve and the Pirelli Portuguese Round. Alvaro Diaz (Arco Motor University Team) heads into the season finale with a 50-point advantage over title rival Victor Steeman (MTM Kawasaki), with 50 available, but Steeman has four wins to Diaz’s two which means the title could be decided on countback. The permutations for Diaz to win the title in Race 1 are very simple as he only needs to score a single point to be crowned the 2022 Champion.

The permutations for Diaz to be crowned Champion are:

  • If Diaz is inside the top 15, he is Champion
  • If Diaz is outside the top 15, and Steeman does not win, he is Champion
