Jack Miller voto 10

He was about to sink, however, in the most difficult moment, he reacted, proving to be a very fast rider and also capable of withstanding the pressure. Now it has to repeat itself regularly, not sporadically as it has done in the past. But let’s enjoy the moment: nice to see him driving like this, nice that he didn’t give up, nice that he believed in it all the way, nice to see him cry excitedly. Beautiful!

Pecco Bagnaia 8.5

The initial prudence, the fear of consuming too much tires, prevented him from winning the GP. Three podiums in four races certify a consistency of performance in the past unknown (in MotoGP), his performances certify that Valentino Rossi is right when he says he is a very strong rider. Not surprisingly, he is leading the world championship. Chills.

Franco Morbidelli 9

On the eve, Thursday, he seemed almost resigned to the obvious technical inferiority of his old Yamaha, but it was a wrong impression. He does not give up, he struggles with what he has, he makes the most of the potential at his disposal: some braking in the race to keep up with his friend / rival Bagnaia were applause. Willpower.

Takaaki Nakagami 8

Here it is again, finally. Evidently he likes Jerez a lot and the return to the 2020 chassis has obviously given him more confidence. He saves Honda’s balance sheet, as has happened so many times in 2020. Perhaps he is not comparable to the absolute phenomena of MotoGP, but he is still a high level one. Very Japanese.

Joan Mir 7

I admit it: I am a huge admirer of the world champion. My feeling is that in the race he always collects the maximum possible, it is difficult to say: “He could and should have done more”. In qualifying, however, he is always in trouble: we need to work on this. Missing the single lap.

Aleix Espargaro 7

The goal was to get into the five: he just misses it, even for problems with his right arm. He crashed twice on Saturday, but overall he is much more concrete than in the past. Maybe slightly slower on the flying lap, but much better this way. Great time.

Maverick Vinales 5

He cannot find consistency in performance, it is as if he continually collides with the same limits, he struggles to grow from the point of view of character and determination. Almost always, if qualifying doesn’t go as he expects, the race is already compromised. Humoral.

Johann Zarco 5

Little incisive in practice as in the race, clearly more in difficulty than in the previous GPs, this time he clearly loses the comparison with the other official Ducati riders. Difficult transfer.

Marc Marquez 6.5

I am among those who thought he would immediately return to very high levels, but, obviously, MotoGP is very complicated even for a super champion like him: if you are not physically fit, you struggle. In three days, he crashed twice and took a lot of risks: he’s not holding this Honda, for the moment. Long recovery.

Pol Espargaro 4

We are not there, the expectations were very different, especially after what we did in the winter tests. But the inability to fix the RC213V is making him nervous, with the passage of time his confidence in the bike (and in the Honda…) decreases instead of increasing. Marquez is very strong, but at least now he should get in front of him. “Lorenzized”.

Fabio Quartararo 6

As long as he had no physical problems, he was clearly the best of the Spanish GP: he deserved 10 until the 16th lap. Then the collapse, the inability to continue driving. Worrying considering that he has already been operated on once on his right arm and that he is very young. We hope there is an immediate remedy. Convalescent.

Danilo Petrucci 5

There is no improvement, at least from the outside and judging the results. Ktm is no longer that of 2020, but more is expected from someone who was able to win at Mugello by beating Marquez and Dovizioso on the last lap. And his future in MotoGP is at stake. Delicate moment.

Luca Marini 5

It is the most difficult season for a rookie, because in the winter he only tried on one track. It requires patience.

Valentino Rossi 4

The problems are always the same, it is obvious that it is unthinkable that between one GP and another there could be a radical change in performance. But it is also difficult to accept seeing a champion like him in those positions. Unrecognizable.

Alex Rins 4

Another crash as he was going strong (he had just done his fastest lap), another hard mistake to digest. We need a change of approach. Repetitive.

Enea Bastianini 5

The same goes for Marini: compared to Luca, he was going much faster in the race. Maybe too much…

Ducati DesmosediciGP vote 9

In Jerez he had won only once, in 2006 with Loris Capirossi. It is true that without Quartararo’s problems he would not have made it this time either, but the competitiveness of the Desmosedici is indisputable even on a track that is not particularly favorable. The engine advantage over the competition is even higher than in the past and this makes a big difference. Bravo Gigi Dall’Igna, bravo.

Yamaha M1 vote 9

He could have played poker, won his fourth consecutive GP. Overall, a very good bike with little engine.

Honda RC213V vote 7.5

Espargaro is right when he says there is a lot of confusion, too many different bikes on the track. We try in every way to make a very difficult bike easier, especially on the front. However Nakagami took it to a good level both in practice and in the race, but with the 2020 chassis.

Suzuki GSX-RR voto 8

According to many, the problems in qualifying are more for the riders – as confirmed by the single lap story of Mir and Rins – than for the bike, but the lack of power this year seems to create more problems than in 2020. Until now, it has been raced. on tracks not very favorable to the GSX-RR, the full potential has not yet been seen.

Aprilia RS-GP voto 8

Another confirmation of competitiveness and growth: A. Espargaro is right when he says that it is not yet ready to win, but the performances are consistently of a high level.

Ktm RC16 vote 5

If he had not crashed, Brad Binder (grade 5) would have probably obtained a more than decent result, but it is clear that KTM is not the one of 2020. Ah, how much concessions are lacking.
