Italian Francesco Bagnaia will be looking for a fifth consecutive MotoGP victory this weekend at the Aragon Grand Prix, marked by the return of Mark Marquezto catch up a little more behind the leader in the championship, the Frenchman Fabio Quartararo.
At the dawn of this fifteenth round of the year, the gap continues to narrow between El Diablo and his pursuer Pecco Bagnaia in the general classification: 30 points currently separate the Ducati rider from his rival at Yamaha.
This new Spanish round (the second of the season after the Catalunya Grand Prix in June) will also see the return to competition of the Spaniard Marc Marquez, absent for three months due to an arm operation. The fourth in two years!
The six-time World Champion, born less than 200 kilometers away, considers himself at home here and his five successes in the premier category bear witness to this.
However, for this weekend, the objective will be above all “to build everything and prepare well for the future“, instead of “fight right away“, explained the Honda rider.
Another return announced, that of the 2020 World Champion, the Spaniard Joan Mir. Injured in the ankle in August, the Suzuki rider missed the San Marino Grand Prix in early September.
