Márquez and Espargaró start second third of 2022 season at Mugello

The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello will host its 28th Italian Motorcycle Grand Prix this weekend. On a track that has the second longest straight in the world – 1.14km– the MotoGP riders will once again enjoy the legendary Italian track and the unique atmosphere offered by the ‘tifosi.’

Marc Márquez arrives in Italy inside the Top 10 in the standings, and with the aim of continuing to score points. The Repsol Honda Team rider has been on the podium at Mugello five times, achieving 3 victories – across 125cc, Moto2 and MotoGP – and 2 second places in MotoGP.

Pol Espargaró continues to work on solving problems with his Honda RC213V, and on getting back to racing at the front of the field. He also has podium history at Mugello, with two third places from his time in 125cc and a second place in 2012 in Moto2.

Rider Statements


“Mugello is always a great circuit to ride, it’s very fast and when you are pushing down the straight on a MotoGP bike, it’s a great feeling. We will see what’s possible this weekend, we need to arrive and see what the situation is and where we are. I know that by continuing to work with my team, with Honda, we can return to being where we know our potential is.”


“Last year at Mugello we had a bit of a difficult race, so this year I hope we can have a more straight forward Italian GP. I have been continuing to train to my maximum at home to be ready. We couldn’t achieve what we wanted last time in France, so the objective is of course to come back stronger here in Italy. We have two races and a test in two weeks, there will be a lot of bike time for us, which is good. Let’s get to work”.
