MotoGP 2016 season started with defending champions Jorge Lorenzo racing to Qatar grand prix win while Marc Marquez was at his usual best in the American leg of the season where he scored victories in both Argentina and Austin Texes. Now we head to Jerez which will host the fourth grand prix of the year and Jorge Lorenzo will be eager to replicate his last year’s success on this track when he finished first ahead of Marc Marquez.
Heading into this weekend’s grand prix, Jorge Lorenzo has been in the spot-light who confirmed he will be riding for Ducati next season in 2017 and we can only assume all the questions targeted at him during this week’s Spanish Motogp. Marquez lead the championship table but looking at last year’s results where Lorenzo won four back to back grand prixs in europe we can expect a competitive week of motogp.
