MotoGP Aragón 2021: Schedules, favorites and where to watch the races live

After a week off, the MotoGP World Championship returns with a double. The Aragon Grand Prix will be the first stop on the MotorLand circuit. The third Spanish race of the season may pose a challenge to the leader and great dominator, Fabio Quartararo, which does not usually go well in this circuit.

On the contrary, there are quite a few Spanish pilots who tend to have a great performance in MotorLand, and above the others Marc Márquez shines. Enraged after a losing streak, the eighth world champion reaches one of his left-wing fetishes in which he could make a difference.

Márquez is the favorite, Quartararo always suffers and Viñales makes his debut with Aprilia

If we review the history Quartararo doesn't like MotorLand at all. He already suffered a lot last season, and he himself has acknowledged that it is probably the circuit of the entire world championship in which he suffers the most. The great dominator of the season is on the ropes, but if he also wins here it will be the definitive rubric to his championship.

If one brand has been the great dominator at MotorLand, it is Honda. Of the twelve MotoGP races that have been held at the Terulense circuit, seven of them have been victorious for Honda. Even in a season as bad as last, Álex Márquez entered the goal into the slipstream of Álex Rins in second position.

This could make Marc Márquez a favorite for victory. MotorLand is the best circuit for Honda and also the champion has always had fun on a track where he has accumulated six wins. He already showed at Sachsenring that on the left circuits there is no arm or shoulder that are worth it, he is still king.

Another very clear focus of attention at MotorLand is going to be Aprilia. Maverick Viñales will debut on Noale's motorcycle with many unknowns about how far he could go, while Aleix Espargaró is a true specialist in MotorLand. He arrives after taking the pressure off his first podium, but he already said he wanted more.

The pressure has also been taken off, and comes after a good result, Alex Rins, who won one of the two races last season. The last races of the year are coming up and Suzuki still hasn't won, so both Rins and Joan Mir will have to put the batteries to be able to say at least that they have defended their titles with a win.

The Ducati should adapt well to MotorLand, especially its huge straight. Your greatest asset may be Jorge Martín, who comes in a very fine shape And he has that ability to adapt well to more twisty areas with a bike designed to deliver sheer power. KTM, the sixth brand in contention, right now seems lost. It has to be in MotorLand.

Márquez and Honda, masters and lords of MotorLand

The one in 2021 will be the twelfth MotoGP Grand Prix of Aragon, although in reality it will be the thirteenth race that takes place because last year there was a double appointment under the name of the Teruel Grand Prix. A circuit that could start rotating very soon on the calendar, although the pandemic may slow down Dorna's plans.

Marc Márquez is the lord and master of the Aragon Grand Prix. He has won at MotorLand up to six times, five of them in the MotoGP category and the other in Moto2. Its driving fits perfectly with the demands of MotorLand, and also the Honda has always adapted well, since the days of Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner.

By brands logically it is Honda who crushes all the others with seven victories in twelve races. Yamaha has three (two from Jorge Lorenzo and one from Franco Morbidelli), Suzuki adds that of Rins and Ducati also tasted champagne at MotorLand: it was in the inaugural race, 2010, with Casey Stoner.

Of the current MotoGP grid, only Márquez and Rins know what it's like to win in the premier class, given that Morbidelli will not be in the race. Interestingly, this It is one of the few tracks in the World Championship in which Valentino Rossi has never won., a statistic that will hardly be broken in 2021.

Mediaset will broadcast the Aragon Grand Prix openly

To follow the Aragon Grand Prix live there are three alternatives. DAZN remains the sole holder of the MotoGP rights in Spain, but Movistar + will click the signal of the entire Grand Prix on its DAZN 1 channel, after the agreement reached by both platforms. In addition, the MotoGP VideoPass will always be available.

The great news is that in Spain there will be a third way to follow the Grand Prix, open and through Telecinco, which will broadcast the races. The rest of the sessions will go on the other Mediaset channels. At MotorLand, the usual times of the World Championship return, with the MotoGP race at 2:00 p.m.
