The Italian Grand Prix came to an end at the weekend and although it was a tough time for Repsol Honda Team riders Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro, the duo look forward to making amends and getting up again in Barcelona.

The MotoGP paddock will be heading to the Circuit de Barcelona-Montmelo for the seventh round of the MotoGP World Championship in 2021. 2021 presents a revised layout at Turn 10 so that the drivers can now master the changes to improve safety. Sunday’s 24-lap MotoGP race is sure to be another exciting affair as the season continues to advance rapidly.

For the first time since returning from injury, Marc Marquez will compete on consecutive weekends. This represents a unique test of his physical condition and the eight-time world champion is ready for the weekend as it comes. During his career in the premier class, Marquez has won the Catalonia GP twice and only missed the podium once – in 2015 when he fell in the battle for the lead. Marquez’s goal for the weekend remains the same as he looks to improve both himself and the Repsol Honda Team RC213V over the course of the Grand Prix.

The Montmelo circuit is a real home race for Pol Espargaro from Granollers, his hometown less than ten kilometers from the track. After a compromised race in Mugello, Espargaro wants to organize a trouble-free and constant weekend on home soil. Flashes of progress, like in Free Practice 3 in Italy, let the # 44 look optimistically into the future. Espargaro was in the top ten in the premier class three times at the Catalonia GP after winning the 2013 Moto2 race.

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) – What to Expect?

“Although our last race wasn’t good, Mugello was overall a weekend with some positive aspects for us as it was pretty consistent. We know where we are, we know where we are going, and we will take the right steps week after week. In Montmelo there seems to be some fans in the stands again, the fans create a great atmosphere and it will be very nice to see some people in the stands at the home GP. “

Pol Espargaro (Repsol Honda Team) – What to Expect?

“After a difficult race, sometimes a race in the next week is the best. We have to keep moving, this is MotoGP and we’re getting back to action. We are approaching this new weekend as much as the previous one; with full focus and the goal of improving ourselves. In Mugello we found some things that will help us. Your home race is always something special, even if not all fans can be there again this year. Montmelo is really special to me as I grew up so close to it and where I made my World Cup debut in 2006, it’s something that cannot be described here. We keep working, we keep improving, we keep moving. “
