The Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team is looking forward to resume action after a short break following the Misano Official MotoGP Test. They have used the few days off to prepare for the upcoming triple header, starting with the Gran Premio de Aragón.
Fabio Quartararo has a 30-point lead in the championship standings as he arrives in Alcañiz. He is expecting a difficult weekend in Aragon. El Diablo‘s best premier class result there to date is his top-5 finish in 2019. But he is, as ever, fully determined to put in 100% effort to get a top position and defend P1 in the overall results.
Franco Morbidelli left the Misano Test with a positive feeling and this week aims to build on the work he has done so far. With the set-up of his YZR-M1 now adjusted to his specifications, he anticipates finding out how well it will perform on the Aragón circuit. The Italian has achieved great success at this track, securing the victory at the Teruel GP in 2020. He hopes for a point-winning position to move up from P19 in the standings.
The MotorLand Aragón circuit was added to the MotoGP Calendar in 2010. The track is situated near the town of Alcañiz, a few hours' drive from Barcelona. The fast 5.1km long track has ten left and seven right corners, and a 968m longest straight. It was given the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year award after MotoGP‘s first visit there, reflecting the riders‘ and the fans‘ appreciation of the venue.
