Lorenzo and Dovizioso arrive in Spain to continue their winning streak

The Mugello race will not be easily forgotten by Ducati enthusiasts.

A double win on the home circuit in front of one's own fans is about as good as it gets, and it will remain an unforgettable day both for the team and for all Ducatistas.

But the MotoGP season continues so the teams packed their bags and bikes and moved on to Barcelona where the seventh round of the world championship will take place on the Montmelò circuit.

Jorge Lorenzo arrives at his home track decidedly chuffed after the triumph in Mugello. The Spanish rider finally managed to race on his own terms, dominating from the first lap to the last. And now returning to a track that has seen him on the podium so many times we are sure that we will see great things.

A second place in the Italian race was not exactly what Dovizioso was looking for, so in Spain he will be looking for revenge. Twenty points in two races is quite an accomplishment, but as always the rider from Forlì is eager to close the gap that separates him from the top position in the rankings.

It will be a home race for two of the teams riding the Desmosedici GP: Both Avintia Racing and Angel Nieto Team will be battling to make a good impression in front of their fans, without forgetting that both Bautista and above all Tito Rabat who is a native of Barcelona will have lots of fans crowding the stands of the Spanish circuit.

After the changes to the track made after the tragic accident of Luis Salom in 2016, this year it will be possible to carry out the entire race weekend on the final configuration of the last part of the track, given that last year the changes left many riders unsatisfied and on Saturday were forced to return to a compromise solution.

The track is very technical with long banked curves. It has been resurfaced recently, but the F.1 cars that also perform some of their winter testing here irreparably damage the asphalt surface. The very long straight before the finish line is perfect for the Desmosedici GP's engine, but having a good balance in terms of alignment is essential for good performance.
