MotoGP Holland 2012: Yamaha will look for the weak point, or less strong, of Honda
MotoGP Holland 2012: Yamaha will look for the weak point, or less strong, of Honda

2011 Dutch Grand Prix grid

Cathedral, Assen. Despite the fact that the vast majority of riders preferred the old track to the current one, the Dutch circuit remains one of the favorites for many of them. It is not surprising then that this is the only route in the world that has been on the championship calendar since the start of the Grand Prix in 1949, without skipping an appointment. The scene of some of the best battles in motorcycling, Holland appeals to the spectator for the large number of places to overtake and its fast corners, where the most powerful machines often suffer to keep both wheels in line. It will be the beginning of the three-week European tour with Sachsenring and Mugello.

In MotoGP Jorge Lorenzo It is seen before the opportunity to take advantage of a supposed theoretical inferiority of the Repsol Honda team because, as we read in their statements, the new Bridgestone front compound affects its performance and here, where the rubber spends a good part of the lap supporting high speeds with the leaning motorcycle, Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa could have some performance problems. All this in theory, because practice shows us that both drivers will be, for sure, fighting for victory.

Dani Pedrosa: (with the record at 1'34.525)

Repsol Assen

Casey Stoner:

We will closely follow the performance of two pilots who climb positions like casteller, Álvaro Bautista and Cal Crutchlow. The Talaverano comes from signing the best result of his sporting career in MotoGP, which will undoubtedly have given him that confidence and morale boost that everyone needs from time to time. Cal, injured, comes with a great run of good results in which he has been knocking on the doors of the official Yamaha team. We will see if they finish convincing their bosses, or the Italians. Ben spies He has gotten into the wolf's mouth based on mistakes and bad results, I trust a good role from the Texan.

Here goes my bet:

Moto2: frankly… Marc Márquez

Marc Marquez Scott Redding Silverstone

Because Marc Márquez he has won in Assen with what he has had. He did it in 125cc in 2010 and had no major problem doing it in 2011 with Moto2. Marc, despite Pol Espargaró's victory at Silverstone, continues to be the solo leader of the general classification and after third place he is sure he is thirsty for victory.

Marc Márquez:

Nevertheless, Pol arrives confident after having settled any controversy with a landslide victory. If he lacked something to fight you to you with Marc, he already has it. To the equation we add Scott reddingBecause the similarities between the British circuit and the Drenthe circuit are remarkable, so we hope that this time he will point to the battle again. Finally, to close the club of the magnificent 600cc, we must appoint Thomas Luthi and Andrea Iannone, always ready to give the note.

Moto3: coronation of Maverick Viñales?

Maverick Viñales Assen

The advantage over Sandro Cortese is only two points in the standings but the feeling that Maverick has broadcast to the fan is that, simply, it is faster than german. Like in 2011 in Moto2, there is a rider who seems to be able to win when, basically, he feels like it. However, Catalan can be met with a small and pleasant surprise, Luis Salom. Luis continues his good streak in Moto3 with the intention of establishing himself as a contender for the title, can he avoid Maverick's coronation at La Catedral?

  • Maverick Viñales
  • Roman Fenati
  • Sandro Cortese
