The Spaniard took his first MotoGP podium in the ninth race of the year. At this point in the season, Álex Márquez remains one of only two riders to have finished every race, together with Takaaki Nakagami. He has continued his progress and adaptation to both MotoGP and the RC213V. At Aragón he has been on the podium twice in the last four seasons (third in 2019 and second in 2016, in Moto2).
Stefan Bradl continues as a replacement for the injured Marc Márquez. The German has also found form, having claimed his best result of the year this past weekend at Le Mans. Except for in 2015, Bradl has always finished in the Top 10 at the Aragon Grand Prix.
GP de Aragón 2020 – Declaraciones de los pilotos
“It has been a nice few days enjoying the feeling after Le Mans, I want to say thank you again to everyone who has supported me or sent me a message after the race. But now it is time to reset a little bit and get back to work in Aragon. Qualifying is still the area we need to work on the most as we have shown that our race pace is usually not so bad and we’re able to fight more and more each race. Let’s see what the weather brings, Aragon in the morning can be very cold so we need to pay attention to this. Let’s have a good weekend.”.
“I am happy to continue with the Repsol Honda Team in Aragon but I hope that Marc is continuing to recover well. Coming back to the points last race with a strong ride has given me extra motivation for this weekend in Aragon. It’s a circuit with a lot of variety and some tricky points, especially if the temperatures are cooler you really need to pay attention to the right side of the tyre early in the lap. The aim is to again deliver the best result possible for HRC”.
