From Misano to Aragon, the Ducati Team is back on the track

This weekend the Aragon Motorland hosts the third of four MotoGP races in Spain.

The Ducati Team arrives a week after the home race in Misano where things didn't go as expected. The general lack of grip during the tests and then during the weekend clipped the wings of the Desmosedici GP. Dovizioso and Petrucci didn't stand out, but if nothing else Andrea was a ble to solidify his second place in the standings while Danilo regained third place. Success in Spain will be needed to demonstrate the team's strength once again, despite the fact that in the past the Aragon circuit has been one of the least fortunate for the Desmosedici GP: just a single victory by Casey Stoner in 2010, the year the Iberian track was added to the calendar. 

Motorland Aragon is one of the most recent circuits in Spain dedicated to motor sports. The facility is equipped in an exemplary manner to host events of the highest level. The track itself is one of the most beautiful on the Iberian Peninsula. Its design is extremely technical, even including changes in elevation, and features decidedly challenging points like the small "corkscrew" and the subsequent "wall" curve requiring violent deceleration when the bike is already partially cornering. And don't forget the long straight parallel to the finish line where the Desmosedici GP motorbikes can express all their exuberant power. 

As always it will be important to know how to handle the race from the first round of qualification runs, as small differences in settings can make a big difference in the results, especially when it comes to the tyres.

General info

The modern MotorLand Aragón facility had its roots firmly established with a solid history of street racing in Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003. The need for greater safety led to the proposal and construction of a sporting complex dedicated to motorsport in the area. With support from local institutions, renowned German architect Hermann Tilke was commissioned to design the facility. The circuit, which is 5.077 km long and has always been a riders’ favourite since its first Grand Prix in 2010.
