The Andalusian one will go down in history for being the first grand prix in history to be played consecutively in the same scenario than the previous event (the one in Spain). Never in a year had the World Motorcycle Championship held two consecutive appointments on the same circuit, which leaves a special approach: the riders arrive with the work done the previous weekend, with the option of polishing small defects or, directly, changing the approach.
«I did not have the pressure to win my first race, but after doing so, it is true that I have taken a weight off. But the first thing I did after celebrating it was meeting with my team to try to improve and to try to make more differences this weekend, “acknowledged the leader and winner last Sunday, Fabio Quartararo.
“Although I had difficulties I was able to get 20 points, which is positive for us, but we have to improve the bike,” said the second on Thursday, Maverick Viñales, who will have the Quartararo mirror to try to take a step forward, and the reference of his own problems in the race. “It was very hard, it was very difficult for me to drive my way, it was very physical, too much for me. But a podium is positive. In these four days we have been able to work on some details, we have analyzed many elements, and to see if we are able to make it work. We have to go one step further, “added the third, Andrea Dovizioso.
Three examples of the particularity of a date in which the spotlights will be on Marc Márquez, to understand how far the champion can go, and if his rivals can still take advantage of what happened last Sunday, some physical problems that will also affect the returned Alex Rins and Cal Crutchlow, and that will have to be seen if they mark the balance at take out at the Andalusian date.
