Introduction: An ultra-modern facility, MotorLand Aragón had its roots firmly established thanks to a solid history of street racing in Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003. Safety advice warning against the continuation of this led to the proposal and construction of a sporting complex dedicated to motorsport.
With support from local institutions, renowned German architect Hermann Tilke was commissioned to design the facility. The circuit, which is 5.077km long and has 17 turns, was roundly praised by riders after its first Grand Prix in 2010, and it was rewarded with the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year award, the first time a circuit had received the prize in its debut year.

Marquez looks to strike back on home territory
This weekend’s event will be the fifth time that the Aragon circuit has hosted a GP since joining the calendar in 2010 and Sunday’s MotoGP contest in Spain will also be the 800th race in the premier-class class of Grand Prix racing, since the World Championships were first introduced in 1949.

The current runaway standings leader Marquez slipped out of podium contention as he tried to stay with eventual race winner Valentino Rossi last time out on the Adriatic coast, eventually finishing the race 15th. Marquez still has a 74 point lead in the standings with five rounds to go and a victory at Aragon would edge him closer to retaining the title before the forthcoming ‘flyaway’ triple header.

Still second in the World Championship, Marquez’s Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa will aim to prevent his colleague extending the standings advantage. The winner of the 2012 Aragon race, Pedrosa was unlucky in last year’s Grand Prix as he crashed out due to a broken sensor having been innocuously clipped by Marquez.

For Rossi, his sensational win in front of an ecstatic Misano crowd came more than 18 years after his first ever GP victory in the 125cc class at Brno in 1996, making him the rider with the longest winning career of all-time in Grand Prix racing - taking this record from his friend Loris Capirossi.

For Rossi and his Movistar Yamaha MotoGP teammate Jorge Lorenzo their mission is to beat their Repsol Honda rivals again, with Lorenzo still aiming to register a first victory of 2014, after four recent consecutive second place finishes.

Ducati Team rider Andrea Dovizioso just missed the podium in Italy at round 13 and intends to continue his consistent form in the championship, as does his compatriot and future teammate Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) who rode well to fifth place at the last round.

The likes of Aleix Espagaro (NGM Forward Racing), his brother Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), Pol’s teammate Bradley Smith, Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) and Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) will all be hustling for top ten prominence come Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Drive M7 Aspar team are expected to welcome back 2006 MotoGP™ World Champion Nicky Hayden at round 14, as the American returns from his recent lengthy lay-off due to wrist surgery.

Not the best news for other riders lol
Marquez on Aragon: ‘This is my favourite track of the year’
Just over a week ago at the Italian circuit Pedrosa took a well-earned third place but World Championship leader Marquez crashed on lap ten. The World Champion was able to rejoin the race, though he could only finish 15th.

Both Marquez and Pedrosa have experienced highs and lows at Aragon. Marquez crashed on the first lap in 2010 in 125cc, but came back in 2011 in Moto2™ to win the race, took second place there in the intermediate category in 2012 and won in MotoGP™ last year.

Pedrosa finished second at the Spanish track in his first two outings and then won there in 2012, but an unfortunate clash with teammate Marquez last year saw his first DNF at a track where he has always been strong.

Previewing round 14, Marquez commented, “After a disappointing weekend in Italy, it will be nice to return home to race in front of our home fans in Aragon this weekend and also my fan club will be coming. This is my favourite track of the year and we’ve had good results here in the past three years so I hope to continue this way. It has technical first and final sections, and you need to be strong in cornering, but we will be working hard from Friday to be back on top on Sunday.”

Pedrosa added, “Last year obviously wasn’t the best for me, but apart from that I've always done well in Aragon and I'm looking forward to racing in front of our home crowd again, the support is always great and gives you motivation.”

“Obviously Marc has a huge lead in the Championship but there is only a single point between me and Valentino, so my priority is to win races and open that margin to take second in the standings.”

Great News indeed!
Hayden excited to return to MotoGP™ action
The American underwent surgery on his right wrist in July but he has undergone an intense recovery programme and after riding some dirt-track in recent weeks he feels ready to test himself on his MotoGP™ bike again - at a circuit where he stood on the podium in 2010.

Hayden explained: “I am really happy to finally return to action this weekend. Racing motorcycles is not only my job but my passion and it hasn't been easy for me to miss so many races. I just focused on getting back as quickly as possible but riding a MotoGP machine is not something you can test your fitness for until you try it. I have been riding quite a bit of dirt-track lately but I can't say for sure how strong I am so I am looking forward to getting on the bike and seeing the results of the operation.”

“At the moment I don't want to set any objectives other than to get back out there and see how I feel. I am looking forward to seeing the team again and I can't wait to get back to the serious work on Friday. My arm and wrist feel quite strong and the movement has improved. I didn't want to come back until I knew I had done everything I could to recover and I am happy with the result. I managed to get on the podium the first year we raced at Motorland, I quite like the circuit and it has some fun corners.”

Damn glad HB was ok, you can just smell the $$$ burning in that pic

Andrea Iannone was the quickest rider in MotoGP™ FP1 at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon, with Aleix Espargaro and Marc Marquez also towards the top of the timesheet. The session featured a scary moment for Hector Barbera who was forced to abandon his burning new Ducati.

Dovizioso leads the way on new bike at Aragon
Dovizioso (Ducati Team) set the best time of the opening day at the Spanish circuit, putting in a 1’48.285 lap on softer option rubber and on his new GP14.2 machine, to outpace Marquez - who was on a hard tyre - by 0.043s.

Marquez is looking to repeat his 2013 victory in front of the home fans and he was 0.406s ahead of his Repsol Honda teammate Pedrosa, who was third in FP2.

In fourth place overall Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) was around half a second behind his future teammate Dovizioso, as he also enjoyed riding the new GP14.2 following a test on the machine earlier this week at Mugello for both riders.

Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) was just ahead of his brother Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3) as the Spanish pair ended the day fifth and sixth respectively.

Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3) and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) completed the top ten as the factory Yamaha riders failed to match the pace of Dovizioso and the factory Hondas. Lorenzo and Rossi trailed Dovizioso by 0.684s and 1.027s respectively.

It was a difficult day for Hector Barbera (Avintia Racing) who was forced to abandon his new Ducati in FP1 as it caught fire and then only made it out on track again towards the end of FP2, to set the 17th fastest time overall.

Sucks for Barbera, looked like the new Ducati was doing pretty well before that. I wonder what happens to the rest of his weekend, considering that was his only bike.

I'm a little behind, catching up on video pass. Amazing work by the Avintia team - HB made it back on the track for one fast lap just before FP2 ended.

Sensational Q2 performance puts Marquez on pole
The MotoGP™ Q2 session on Saturday afternoon in Spain resulted in Marc Marquez taking pole at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon, with Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Iannone also achieving front row slots.
A new pole position record of 1’47.187 gave Marquez his 11th pole position of 2014 - and his 20th MotoGP pole in total - ahead of Sunday’s 800th premier class Grand Prix.


Marquez led the way by a 0.362s margin having broken the pole record earlier in the session, only for Pedrosa to move into provisional pole position with a 1’47.549s, with Marquez responding on his final lap. Marquez was 0.617s quicker than his own pole record from 2013.

The front row was completed by the consistently impressive Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) who has a new GP14.2 bike this weekend and qualified just under half a second behind Marquez.

Row two will comprise rookie Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3),

Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), the Italian having earlier made it through from Q1.

Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) qualified at the head of the third row in seventh place, 1.059s behind the rampant Marquez. Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) and crasher Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) complete the third row.

Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) was unhappy at the end of the session as he was held up by another rider and qualified tenth.

Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) crashed with just three minutes to go, leaving him 11th on the grid and Dovizioso (Ducati Team) also fell minutes later. Despite advancing through Q1 on his new Ducati, Hector Barbera (Avintia Racing) was unable to set a lap time due to front end chatter problems – thus being classified 12th.

Nicky Hayden (Drive M7 Aspar) qualified in 18th place in Q1 as he returns to Grand Prix action this weekend, whilst Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Motoracing) had big crash at the end of Q1 and ended up 17th.

That was an exciting Q2. MM sets record, DP takes it back, then MM destroys it, all within the last 5 minutes of Q2.

I hope the rain stays away tomorrow.

Stupid mistake by Marquez and Pedrosa. So stupid to keep running slicks in the rain. Just like Phillips Island last year, Marquez costs himself major points by making a dumb strategic decision. A win would have given him a 97 point lead over Pedrosa if he had pitted after Pedrosa crashed. Probably can't clinch anything until after Phillips Island now.

It was stupid sure, but he still gained points. Lorenzo celebrating like he just won the championship was pretty stupid too.

I'm a Marquez fan, but he's lucky he gained points at all. Quit being a Marquez homer. That move was just plain stupid, and he's lucky he didn't cost himself more points or even the championship if the wreck was worse. Lorenzo and Yamaha celebrating a win at a track they've never won at. Yeah, probably a reason to celebrate a little considering how bad they had been running all weekend.

wow that was the craziest race thus far. Poor AI he was off to a good start. When Vale went down it didn't look good glad he is ok. As far as when to pit, it's entirely up to the rider not the team. Marc and Dani decided to stay out, it's a gamble that obviously didn't pay off. I do believe if the points were a lot closer Marc would have gone in. The craziest thing about the closest riders in points to him finished behind him with Vale DNF. His point total actually increased by 1. Marc is very lucky he started the season so well and was able to have a huge buffer in points for times like these. Hats off to JL99 for completing the perfect race imo. What a finish for AE and CC haha that last run to the checkered was awesome! congrats to them as well!!

Lorenzo wins chaotic 800th premier class Grand Prix
Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) took victory by over 10 seconds as he judged the conditions better than his rivals, changing bikes with four laps to go, with Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) just beating Crutchlow (Ducati Team) to the line to complete the podium. The riders were forced to change to wet set-ups in the final stages after the rain began to fall heavily – having started the race on a drying track.

The tricky conditions caused Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) to crash out before swapping to his wet bike and he was taken to the medical centre for checks on a hip trauma. Repsol Honda teammates Pedrosa and Marquez took a risk staying out in the wet on slick tyres in the final laps. Pedrosa fell and remounted to take 14th with Marquez crashing later and finishing 13th after eventually swapping to his wet bike too.

The top five was completed by Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) and Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3) as they took advantage of the crashes ahead of them. Smith just beat his teammate Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3) to the line by 0.203s.

The top ten was completed by Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), Hiroshi Aoyama (Drive M7 Aspar), Nicky Hayden (Drive M7 Aspar) and Scott Redding (GO&FUN Honda Gresini).

Before the rain had fallen Iannone (Pramac Racing) crashed as he ran wide having led for the opening laps. He looked as though he might stay upright but wet grass sent him skyward. Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) had a similar incident, running wide and touching the grass resulting in a vicious highside. He was taken to the medical center but deemed ok, before being taken to hospital for precautionary head scans.

Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Motoracing) retired with a mechanical problem early in the race.
