With exactly one third of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship behind them, the Ducati Team riders are all set to tackle round 7 of the season this weekend in Spain, at the Montmeló circuit on the outskirts of Barcelona. A long straight and numerous corners with good overtaking points make the Catalan circuit one of the most spectacular on the calendar and the Catalan GP always attracts a massive crowd.

Last year’s race saw Andrea Iannone start from twelfth on the grid, but he crossed the line in a positive fourth place. The Montmelò track remains one of the Italian rider’s favourites and he picked up a win here in Moto2 in 2012. His team-mate Andrea Dovizioso, who started from row 2, was forced to retire after crashing out on lap 6.

The Catalan GP weekend gets underway on Friday morning with the first session of free practice at 09.55 CET, while the 25-lap race is scheduled for Sunday at 14.00 CET.
