The sixth test of this season arrives and we arrived in Italy with Valentino Rossi leading the MotoGP World Championship. With a start to the season in which he has not gotten off the podium at any time and with a Jorge Lorenzo who is coming back at a rapid pace, showing that he is also very strong with the Yamaha. Paint an Italian GP with Movistar blue and few Spanish riders on the podium.
As in Moto2 and Moto3 where the leading riders are Johann Zarco in Moto2 and Danny Kent in Moto3. Although none of them won the race in their category at the French GP a fortnight ago. And they come to Italy with great enthusiasm.
If we say Mugello it is very easy to say Yamaha in recent years, with the exception of 2014 that entered the list of Marc Márquez with Honda. Jorge Lorenzo's victories on this track have been more or less the way the Mallorcan likes them, with a brilliant start, and practically no one hinders him on the laps that the race lasts. But with a Extra-motivated Valentino Rossi, anything can happen on Sunday when the traffic light goes out.
And if we talk about motivated Italians, Andreas's couple who drive the Ducati GP15They also arrive with all the desire in the world to confirm that the Ducatona is a winning motorcycle and they are riders of the highest level. The only but would be for Andrea Iannone, who has just been detected a fracture in the upper part of the humerus after a fall in the last tests that his team carried out in Mugello itself before the French GP.
In Honda things do not seem to be going so well, with a Dani Pedrosa who is still recovering of his arm problems and a Marc Márquez who this year does not seem to have many things coming to the right as in previous seasons.
The list of those operated in recent days includes the two Espargaró brothers, so their options for this appointment are a bit up in the air. For his part, Nicky Hayden, who won an Open category race for the first time this season at the French GP, arrives at Mugello in second position in the standings after Héctor Barberá.
Moto2 all against Johann Zarco
Johann zarco He arrives at Mugello with the confidence that the 89 points give him that allow him to lead the Moto2 classification. Meanwhile Tito Rabat also arrives in Italy on a clear upward path after the podium in France and with the poster of being the only rider in the category who knows what it is to win in Moto2 at this circuit.
Those who come to Mugello with the need to do well are Álex Rins and Jonas Folguer, which ended up in the dirt at Le Mans. on Sunday we will see Mattia Pasini as a Wild Card rider. Another detail to take into account is that Mugello is the base circuit of the Speed Up team and therefore of Sam Lowes, who has encouraged the races a lot so far this season and is in fourth place overall.
Moto3, Danny Kent arrives "on fire"
Roman Fenati He has an idyll with Mugello that dates back to 2012 when he finished second in the Moto3 race. Last year he managed to win the race, which is why he is running strong for victory. Let's see if he gets two in a row after winning at Le Mans a fortnight ago.
Another driver looking forward to Sunday will be Enea Bastianini who made a comeback at Le Mans that took him to second place after starting in 18th position. But the one who surely arrives the most motivated is Danny Kent, who was staying off the podium at Le Mans for the first time this season. Although it continues to lead with 104 points, 37 more than Fabio Quartararo. The young French rider continues to learn the new circuits by leaps and bounds, warning that his is not going to be a flower of a day.
Options for the Italian GP
Seeing how the previous races have been, I think that in MotoGP we are going to see a podium with the two Yamaha at the top and Andra Dovizioso's Ducati in third place. In Moto2 I would bet on Sam Lowes accompanied by Tito Rabat and Álex Rins. While on Moto3 Danny Kent sure that he will return to the top escorted by the KTM of Roman Fenati and the Honda of Fabio Quartararo. Huy, if I just realized that I almost copied the podiums at Le Mans, why is it?
