After Three Weeks Of Rest, The Czech Circuit Of Brno Launches This Weekend

The second half of the MotoGP World Championship, which opens on Sunday with the Czech Grand Prix in Brno, promises to be captivating due to an unprecedented situation in the Top 4, which held in just ten small points.

Two Spaniards, Marc Marquez Honda, 129 points and Maverick Vinales Yamaha, 124 pts, and two Italians, Andrea Dovizioso Ducati, 123 pts, and Valentino Rossi Yamaha, 119 pts are waging a hard fight this season. Who will be sacred? Each of them has already been at the head of the general classification since the start of the season.

And everyone was able to find, according to the specifics of their iron horse, a playing field that suited them the most: the Ducati the fastest tracks, the Honda the technical and slower tracks, the Yamaha in-between.

New twists in the tightest classification since the introduction of the current points scale in 1993 cannot exclude on the Brno circuit, which is not the one that the first three drivers of the general classification cherish the most.

Rossi, the most comfortable in the Czech Republic

Defending champion and world ranking leader Marc Marquez, who had started his season badly and regained leadership thanks to his 8th consecutive success in Germany, has so far signed only one MotoGP victory in Brno, 5.4 km long circuit with winding passages and two long straight lines.

There are a lot of changes in direction and a lot of elevation. We will try to do our best to try to fight for the podium on Sunday, reassured the Catalan, who was able to benefit from private practice in Brno this summer.

Only 5 points behind Marquez, his compatriot Vinales wants to return to his performances at the start of the season three victories in five races even if his Czech record is rather meager, with only one podium in 2013, in Moto3.

The Czech track record of Andrea Dovizioso - Ducati is not too bright either: the one who signed two victories this season can only boast in Brno the 2nd place in MotoGP in 2011, and three other podiums in 125cc and 250cc, between 2004 and 2007.

Unlike Marquez, Vinales, and Dovizioso, Valentino Rossi does not hide his passion for the Brno circuit, one of the most complete in the World Championship: it was here that he won his first Grand Prix, in 125cc, August 18, 1996. Marquez was then only. Three years old.

Zarco confident, Baz operated during the truce.

In MotoGP, the Doctor has already won five victories, the last dating from 2009. Last year, he took 2nd place after a functional recovery from 12th place at the end of the first round.

Behind this quartet, Spaniard Dani Pedrosa - Honda, double Brno winner in MotoGP in 2012 and 2014, and French rookie Johann Zarco - Yamaha Tech3 are no less eager for success, before this 10th round of the World Championship.

I have trusted this route since the start of my career, and I am pretty quick on it, said the Avignon native, 9th on German soil, the last outing before the summer break, and 6th in the drivers' classification. In Brno, I might be able to get on the podium, hopes Zarco, already 2nd in the French GP.

The second French MotoGP rider, Loris Baz Ducati Avintia, 19th in Sachsenring, took advantage of the summer break to undergo compartment syndrome surgery, something quite common among riders, he said.
