Following Fabio Quartararo‘s flawless win at the Portuguese GP, the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team are in high spirits and excited to get back to action this weekend at the Gran Premio de España.
Quartararo currently is tied for first place in the championship rankings. He has set himself a firm goal for this weekend: he will try to fight for the victory again in Jerez after missing out on last year‘s Spanish GP win due to arm pump problems. The Frenchman is familiar with the Andalusian podium: he was unbeatable in 2020, opening the season with two consecutive victories there.
Franco Morbidelli arrives in Jerez holding fifteenth place in the championship standings after a disappointing Portuguese GP weekend. Nevertheless, the Italian is strongly determined to add another solid performance to his Jerez results. He visited the Spanish GP podium for the first time last year, taking third place. He would love nothing better than a do-over this weekend.
The Circuito de Jerez was built in 1986 and has hosted one of the most popular MotoGP events of the season ever since. Blessed with good weather, beautiful scenery, fast corners, hard braking areas, and a natural amphitheatre, the 4.4km Jerez circuit offers spectators a great view of the unforgettable racing action that takes place here.
