Introduction:
Built in 1986 and hosting its first Grand Prix one year later, the circuit of Jerez is now one of the most popular MotoGP venues and the focal point for a city fanatical about sport. Set in a slight valley in the south of Spain, Jerez is blessed with consistently good weather and beautiful scenery, its numerous grandstands providing the perfect viewing facilities for up to 250,000 spectators.


With two alternative road circuits (4,423m and 4,428m), which were resurfaced during 2005, Jerez is a popular venue used by many race teams for testing throughout the year, whilst its recently updated corporate and media facilities have proven to be a popular addition to the complex. Other facilities such as the control tower and pit boxes have also been vastly improved.

Crutchlow in Jerez and ready to remount Desmosedici GP14
For the Ducati Team, the Gran Premio bwin de España marks the return of Cal Crutchlow on his Desmosedici GP14 machine after an absence of one race.
The British rider, who was injured in the race at Austin, where he suffered a dislocated right little finger and a tiny fracture in the same hand, had to miss the last round in Argentina.

To speed up his recovery, Crutchlow has been spending the last few days at home in the Isle of Man, trying to get ready for the Spanish round with the help of a hyperbaric chamber.

Ahead of his return to the racetrack Crutchlow commented, "My hand is getting better every day, but I still have some pain and it’s definitely going to be difficult to ride this weekend. I’ll try and see how it is from Friday and do the best job I can."

"Jerez is surely one of the toughest circuits to come back and ride at after my crash. It’s a really great track, and the crowd are great as well, but really I’m just excited about joining up with the team again and getting back on the bike."

Alongside Crutchlow and his teammate Andrea Dovizioso, Michele Pirro will race at Jerez as a ‘wild-card’ for the Ducati Test Team, having substituted for the Englishman in Argentina.

Rossi anticipates special visit to Jerez
Given his superb record at Jerez it is no wonder Valentino Rossi is looking forward to a ‘special weekend’ at the Gran Premio bwin de España
Following the opening three rounds of the 2014 season the experienced Italian sits third in the general standings thanks to his Qatar podium and the additional points he collected in Texas and Argentina.

Rossi now arrives back in Europe excited to return to a circuit that has recorded him a considerable number of victories, hoping to step onto the rostrum again.

The nine-time World Champion has an impressive record at the Spanish circuit with six premier class wins and two additional victories in the 125cc and 250cc classes. Last year’s visit saw him finish just off the podium with fourth place.

“Jerez is one of the most special and important Grand Prix weekends of the season,” Rossi states. “The track is fantastic and there will be a lot of fans so the target is to improve and make the podium.”

“We have to work a lot, the bike is good but we have some weak points which we have to improve to go faster so we can fight with the Hondas.”

Bridgestone to withdraw from MotoGP™ after the 2015 season
Bridgestone, the Official Tyre Supplier to MotoGP™ since 2009, has agreed a one-year extension to its current tyre supply contract with series promoters Dorna to supply tyres for the 2015 season, after which the Japanese tyre manufacturer will withdraw from the role of Official Tyre Supplier.
Bridgestone entered the MotoGP™ World Championship at the dawn of the modern four-stroke era in 2002, with the objective of establishing itself as the world leader in tyre development. The Japanese company’s rise to glory was characterised with quick-found success in the championship with a first pole position in its maiden year, a first podium in 2003 and a first race victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2004.

From this point onward, Bridgestone’s success rapidly gained momentum with multiple victories in the 2005 and 2006 seasons, culminating in a first MotoGP™ championship title with Ducati’s Casey Stoner in 2007. A second MotoGP™ championship followed in 2008 with Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi, resulting in Bridgestone receiving the honour of being named the first ever Official Tyre Supplier to the series, thus achieving its objective of distinguishing itself as the world’s premier motorcycle tyre manufacturer.

A long and successful involvement in MotoGP™, supported by significant investment, has given Bridgestone an edge over the competition through the transition of race-proven technologies from the circuit to the road. Motorcycle riders around the globe will benefit from Bridgestone’s long and successful involvement in MotoGP™ for many years to come.

Bridgestone expresses its deepest gratitude to the riders, teams, FIM, IRTA and Dorna, as well as motorsports fans around the world, for their support over the years. Although it is planning to exit the MotoGP World Championship at the end of the 2015 season, Bridgestone is doing its best to promote motorsport as part of its portfolio of activities.

Shu Ishibashi - Senior Vice President Chief Marketing Officer Responsible for Group Global Marketing, Bridgestone Corporation

"Since 2002 Bridgestone has invested large amounts of resources into MotoGP, to help us achieve the goal of becoming the world’s foremost tyre manufacturer. During this time we have forged a strong and successful partnership with Dorna and the teams, which culminated in our company being the first ever Official Tyre Supplier to the championship. MotoGP has proved to be an extremely valuable tyre development platform that has helped us introduce highly advanced technologies into our range of road tyres, to the benefit of consumers. The increase in our brand awareness since joining the series has also been an excellent outcome for us, and we are proud that we have been involved in a series that continues to grow in popularity year-on-year. While Bridgestone will withdraw from the MotoGP championship after 2015, we are considering other opportunities to maintain our position of as a key player for motorsports fans all around the world."

Kyota Futami – General Manager, Global Motorsport Department, Bridgestone Corporation

"It is with some sadness that we will make our exit from MotoGP after such a prosperous participation in the sport. Yet, having achieved everything we set out to do when we entered the championship over ten years ago, including sharing in many MotoGP World Championships, our company believes it is the right time to implement an exit strategy from the series. Over the next two seasons we will continue our world-class level of support to all the teams and riders, and will keep investing heavily in our MotoGP tyre development programme. We will continue to push the boundaries of motorcycle tyre development over the next two years to ensure that we leave the championship at the end of 2015 in the best way possible."

Dorna, in agreement with the FIM, has decided to call a tender for tyre manufacturers interested in becoming Official Tyre Supplier to MotoGP™ from the 2016 season.

The Tender application starts today, the 1st May 2014, and will conclude on the 22nd May 2014.

All interested tyre manufacturers can request the technical specifications from Dorna’s Managing Director Javier Alonso.

Dorna Sports SL wishes to thank Bridgestone for the years of great collaboration and success in the championship.

Collective excitement for riders as MotoGP™ hits Europe
The first European racing of 2014 will take place this weekend and Thursday saw MotoGP™ riders Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Cal Crutchlow joined by Moto2™ standings leader Tito Rabat in the preliminary Jerez press conference.
Anticipating an exciting Gran Premio bwin de España weekend, MotoGP World title holder and championship frontrunner Marquez expects his rivals to be in good form and to push him hard throughout round four - as he competes in his 100th Grand Prix.

He stated, "It will be a special weekend to race in my 100th Grand Prix in front of the home fans at a circuit where I've never won. I know that Dani, Jorge and Valentino all ride well here and I think they will all be strong."

From the other side of the Repsol Honda garage Pedrosa is also ready for another adrenaline pumped Grand Prix, at a venue which he counts as one of his favourites.

"It will be very warm here and the atmosphere is always great on race day," noted Pedrosa. "I have a good record here and I hope to keep that going. I’ve made a good start to the season and I want to maintain the form in front of the home crowd."

Meanwhile, as the most successful rider of them all at Jerez, Rossi is keen to return to the podium in Spain having missed the rostrum at the last two rounds.

Rossi boasts six premier class wins in Andalusia and cannot wait to get started on Friday, saying, "I had a good potential in Austin and Argentina and should have been on the podium but because of bad luck and some other factors we did not do it, so we have to put it right this weekend. We have been flying a lot already this year so now we have a run of European races to enjoy."

For his Movistar Yamaha MotoGP colleague Lorenzo there is also a landmark weekend ahead at the circuit which has a corner named in his honour. Lorenzo turns 27 this Sunday and he is set to make his 200th Grand Prix appearance at round four.

Victory would be the ideal birthday present and Lorenzo enthused, "The 200 Grands Prix have come fast, with good moments and bad. Now we are here fighting in MotoGP at the top level. I felt happier and more positive in Argentina, but we still want to do better and we hope to do that here."

Representing the Ducati Team once again this weekend, having missed Argentina due to a finger injury from Austin, Briton Crutchlow stated, "It’s great to be back. It was strange to sit back and watch it on television. I was sure I could have won it when I was watching like millions of other armchair racers do every week! The injury was one of the most painful of my career and we have to see how my fitness is after FP2. I think I have enough strength to brake properly but I don’t want to be a danger to myself or the other riders."

Last up on the microphone was Moto2™ title candidate Rabat who has 70 points from a maximum possible 75 so far this year. He commented, "It’s still so early in the championship and there is a lot of racing still to come this year. There are some strong rivals in Moto2 so we can’t relax. We know there will be a great atmosphere this weekend as there is always a big crowd so we want to enjoy it."

On the news that Bridgestone will withdraw from their position as Official Tyre Supplier to MotoGP™ at the end of 2015, the riders gave their reactions, with Marquez commenting, "I’m surprised about it as they have been really successful and the tyres have been getting better and better over the years. It has taken time for Bridgestone to reach the level they are at."

Rossi added, "I’m sad about this because I think Bridgestone’s tyres are at a great level. If the tyres change the sport changes. The bikes and the riding styles will also have to adapt. It’s difficult to have one tyre which works well for every bike."

Crutchlow said, "The reality is for whoever comes in that the riders will always ask for more. One thing I would ask for is to have intermediate tyres for mixed conditions. I think Bridgestone have done a great job. The tyre is the only thing which holds you to the ground and all the bikes react differently."

Earlier in the day MotoGP™ riders Hiroshi Aoyama and Danilo Petrucci were joined by Moto2™ trio Xavier Simeon, Luis Salom and Jordi Torres and Moto3™ regular Ana Carrasco, along with Moto3 wildcard Maria Herrera, in a visit to the Jose Estevez Bodegas in Jerez – where they learned how to serve wine from a barrel in the typical Spanish style.

[BEspargaro sets rapid pace on Friday morning][/B]
Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) set a 1'39.357 fastest lap in FP1 at the Gran Premio bwin de España on an extra soft tyre, to lead from Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez.
‘Open’ Forward-Yamaha equipped Espargaro produced two hot laps at the end of the session with the second of those two rapid circulations giving him the top spot on the timesheet by a 0.357s margin.

The race fastest lap at Jerez belongs to Lorenzo from 2013 (1'39.565) and he was just off that pace in practice in second place with a 1’39.714.

Marquez, meanwhile, was third fastest with a time 0.492s behind Espargaro, with his Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa making it four Spaniards in the top four with a similar time. Lorenzo’s Movistar Yamaha MotoGP colleague Valentino Rossi completed the top five, 0.8s off P1 pace.

Alvaro Baustista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), Yonny Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing) and Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3) completed the top ten.

Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) walked away from a crash at Turn Five late in the session and finished 12th, whilst Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) made a comeback from a hand injury in 18th, with his fitness to be further assessed after FP2.

Marquez quickest in later run, Espargaro Friday’s fastest
Marc Marquez was the pace setter in MotoGP™ FP2 at Jerez from Aleix Espargaro and Andrea Dovizioso, but Espargaro was Friday’s fastest rider overall.
Repsol Honda’s World Champion Marquez – who is participating in his 100th Grand Prix - led the way in the later practice at the Gran Premio bwin de España with a 1'39.757, though neither he nor his rivals were able to match Espargaro’s 1'39.357 morning best.
NGM Forward Racing’s Espargaro was second quickest in the afternoon, trailing Marquez by 0.216s as the track temperature in the south of Spain rose to 53°C. The third best rider in FP2 was Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), who was 0.271s behind Marquez.
In fourth place on the FP2 timesheet was Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi (0.368s) who was just ahead of his colleague Jorge Lorenzo – the latter reaching the 200 Grand Prix milestone this weekend.
Completing the afternoon top ten were Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team), Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) and Nicky Hayden (Drive M7 Aspar), whilst there were crashes for Hiroshi Aoyama (Drive M7 Aspar), Hector Barbera (Avintia Racing) and Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3) – though none were seriously hurt.
Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) returned to action in 15th on the timesheet but was able to complete 16 laps in FP2 despite his hand injury.

Second and sixth for Lorenzo and Rossi on day one
As the Gran Premio bwin de España got underway at a scorching hot Jerez on Friday, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP riders Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi were second and sixth respectively on the combined timesheet
The experienced pair made progress despite a track temperature of around 50°C, making a lack of grip an increasing issue in the second session. Lorenzo ended the day in second overall with a best lap of 1’39.714, 0.357s from first.
Teammate Rossi was sixth with a 1’40.125 lap, less than four tenths from Lorenzo. The major challenge for both riders proved to be a lack of rear grip so the team will now work to make improvements for both set ups ahead of Saturday’s third free practice session.
Lorenzo and Rossi also tested a new chassis for their YZR-M1 to improve the bike’s stability under braking. Positive results were obtained, giving Yamaha’s Japanese engineers a clear direction to continue development.
Lorenzo stated, “The track changed so much from the morning to the afternoon, it was much more slippery and we had to try the different rear tyre. Like in Qatar it gave us the same problems with less grip and the bike then feels nervous. We are much closer than before though and I think we can close the gap.”
Rossi added, “We tried a different chassis today especially for the braking stability and the first impression is not so bad, it’s just a small step to understand the way to go. The track is very greasy so it’s difficult with the front and rear tyres with the high temperatures. It's difficult to control the bike and it slides a lot. Compared to the other top guys the pace is not so bad so it looks like we have worked well so far and now have to continue.”

Dovizioso happy with pace and Crutchlow pleased to be back
Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso was satisfied with his pace on Friday and his returning teammate Cal Crutchlow pleased to be back in action at the Gran Premio bwin de España.
Dovizioso finished the first day in Jerez fifth on the overall timesheet, with his 1’40.028s time in FP2 leaving him 0.671s off Aleix Espargaro’s best lap of the day.
“I’m happy because I expected today to be more difficult and our pace is not too far from the fastest riders,” Dovizioso stated. “I think we’re in the ‘second group’ at the moment and I feel quite positive about that.”
When asked about the departure of Bridgestone from MotoGP™ at the end of 2015, which will mean a different supplier coming into the premier class, Dovizioso commented, “When you change the tyres anything can happen, it could be really positive or really negative, you just don’t know before you use it. In the two years ahead I think many things will change for Ducati, but if we had to change the tyre now, for example, I think for the teams who are further back it could be a positive point. But it could also be negative so anything could happen.”
On his return to riding, having missed the trip to Argentina, Friday’s 18th fastest rider Crutchlow admitted, “I was surprised because I thought the hand would be more sore than it is. It is very sore for changing direction but on braking it’s not so bad. We can’t put pressure on it immediately, which is what we need to do with a Grand Prix bike.”
“It seemed like everyone else is more up to speed than me having raced five days ago, so it will take me a little bit of time to get into it.”

If this new chassis is more stable under braking it certainly doesn't look more stable on corner exit:

Marquez with a new record and another pole by .4 seconds. His times on the harder option tire were competitive with the softer tires most were running in FP. Kid is crazy good.

Marquez ‘very happy’ as pole domination continues
Marc Marquez is participating in his 100th GP this weekend and Saturday saw the MotoGP™ World Champion maintain his perfect 2014 qualifying form.
Marquez now also boasts a 59% ratio of poles in all MotoGP starts (13 in 22 attempts) after clinching the top spot in Jerez, breaking the lap record en route with a 1’38.120.

Before qualifying, Marquez and his team calculated that a three-stop run would be possible during the 15 minute session, which they felt was important as the life of the soft rear tyre was apparently optimum for only one flying lap with track temperatures so high.

Marquez stole Lorenzo’s lap record from 2008 (1’38.189) – the last season in which there were still qualifying tyres in MotoGP – and recorded the fastest ever official lap on two wheels at Jerez with a time of 1’38.120 on lap eight of eight.

“I am very happy with this pole position, as it was hard fought and I wasn't expecting it. We are suffering a little more here than at other tracks, but despite this we are still at the same level as Lorenzo and (Dani) Pedrosa,” said the young Spaniard.

On his unique pit strategy he added, “We changed it at the last minute; I asked if it would be possible to use three soft tyres, and they said that it was. It was all last minute and I am satisfied with how it worked out, but we know that Sunday is the important day. Jorge and, above all, Dani have a great pace”

His teammate Dani Pedrosa opted for the normal two stop strategy, completing two flying laps with each tyre, and clocked a time of 1’38.630 placing him on the front row in third for Sunday’s 27 lap race.

Pedrosa commented, "We took a step forward with the bike setup today and also went better with the race tyres. In the qualifying session we tried to do as well as possible, but it is always difficult to put in a really fast lap. We will try to get a good start, then have a good race.”

Lorenzo secures second successive front row
Track temperatures of 50°C provided the background to a Saturday duel for pole position between Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez in qualifying at the Gran Premio bwin de España.
Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Lorenzo led for much of the session, taking second at the end to secure his place on the front row of the grid for the race.

Lorenzo dropped immediately into the 1’38s with a 1’38.541 lap. He was unable to improve on his lap time, but remained unchallenged until the last minute as rival Spaniard Marquez took pole, just over four tenths ahead of him.



Lorenzo stated, “We tried our best to make the best lap time, but unfortunately with the second tyre I don't know why I it didn't feel the same, it felt a little more slippery which is why I didn't improve my lap. The goal was to stay in the first row; that was important.”

The Spaniard added, “Obviously pole position would be better but the most important thing is to start well in the race, I think we have a good pace so we can definitely fight at the front. It will be important to stay close at the front for the first couple of laps, the rear tyre is going to drop a lot but I feel physically good as I did last year which will be very important for the race.”

Nine time World Champion Valentino Rossi’s first flying lap of 1’39.050 gave him second initially before he dropped to third as the pace increased. Following a change to the rear and front of the bike he was back on track with five minutes remaining.

With three minutes left on the clock he dipped into the 1’38s with a 1’38.857 and looked safe for third on the grid until rival Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) pushed the Italian to fourth.

Rossi commented, “I wanted to try for the front row but I knew it would be very difficult. In all the practice and also this afternoon I wasn't very far from the top three and my lap time is good. I’m quite satisfied because it’s the best qualifying and especially I feel good with the bike. I will try to do the maximum to stay with the top three. We still have to improve something with acceleration as with the high temperature we spin a lot. We will decide on the tyre when we see the temperature.”

The win is within the reach of all four really, looking forward to it, and if Rossi doesn't get a podium at least I will kill someone. Maybe myself.

Well, judging from the first few races the lest we know is the first 6-10 laps are going to be good. What lies ahead of that is where the Honda and Yamaha teams will finish, 1-4.
