Last weekend at the #ItalianGP, it was a weekend of unusual events. Starting with Valentino Rossi qualifying on pole position, to Marc Marquez crashing during the race, and finally Jorge Lorenzo finally achieved his first win on the Ducati. The #ItalianGP post-race press conference provided laughs, and even Lorenzo and Rossi shared a joke, as Rossi congratulated Lorenzo on his maiden win.
Thursday’s press conference for the #CatalanGP will see Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Joan Mir, Cal Crutchlow, Andrea Dovizioso, Jorge Lorenzo and Danilo Petrucci give their opinions on this weekend’s action, new signings and next year. Marquez is the current championship leader, despite a spill at last weekend’s #ItalianGP costing him valuable points, he leads the way by 23 points. Rossi is second in the title standings, closely followed by Viñales.
Friday should be sunny, with little/no cloud cover and highs of 24ºC. Saturday shows potential for rain with highs of 24ºC. Race day Sunday is to see cloud cover with breaks of sunshine throughout and temperatures are to be the highest of the weekend at 24ºC.
This weekend’s #CatalanGP is to be a weekend of excitement. Who will triumph; 2018 leader Marquez, 2017 race winner Dovizioso, Mugello winner Lorenzo, or will someone else steal the spotlight under the Spanish sun?
