After scoring his first career points at Portimao, Luca Marini is curious to see how he will perform at the more familiar Jerez venue.
Losail and Portimao are both newer circuits that are not generally used for in or post-season rider tests. There were the venues MotoGP started its campaign with in 2021. Jerez, however, is used extensively along with circuits such as Valencia and Mugello for testing. This will mean a more even playing field in the mind of Esponsorama VR46 rider Luca Marini.
“We arrived in Jerez after a good weekend in Portimao. We start with historical European circuits that all the riders know very well from other categories,” Marini said.
“I am very curious to race on this track with the MotoGP: compared to Portugal and Qatar, as it is shorter so it will be more difficult to reach the pace. We will start with the work done in Portimao, to try to achieve the positive feelings that I had there, and to achieve the best results in the race.”
Marini has cause to be happy to go to Jerez, as he won one race and came second in the other in 2020.
