Austin MotoGP Preview ��� What To Expect From The Circuit Of The Americas This Weekend


Jerez, however, has not been a good circuit for Ducati; their one and only MotoGP win came in 2006 with Loris Capirossi. That remains the only none Honda or Yamaha win in MotoGP at the circuit since the class was introduced in 2002. Surprisingly only one of those Honda wins; 2014 was by Marc Marquez. Lorenzo will take heart from having won their three times on the factory Yamaha and that he put the Ducati on the podium in last years race, finishing third.

Last years race was won by Dani  Pedrosa who rode valiantly to finish seventh in Austin after breaking his wrist in Argentina.


MotoGP standings

1 Andrea Divizioso (Ducati) 46 points

2 Marc Marquez (Honda) 45

3 Maverick Vinales (Yamaha) 41

4 Cal Crutchlow (Honda) 38

5 Johann Zarco (Yamaha) 38

6 Andrea Iannone (Suzuki) 31


Francesco Bagnaia took his second win of the season at Austin to reclaim the lead in the Moto2 championship. His nearest rival Mattia Pasini finished seventh and now finds himself in second place ten points behind Bagnaia. Between them Bagnaia and Pasini have won all three races to date, though interestingly when they have not finished on the top step they have not made the podium places. Alex Marquez and Miguel Oliveira currently sit third and fourth with 47 and 43 points respectively. The pair have shown good consistency so far, both having two podium finishes. Neither rider has finished lower than fifth. Oliveira continues to be the highest places non Kalex framed machine. So far this season he has not been beaten by anyone not using  Kalex framed machinery.
