The MotoGP bandwagon moves to Catalunya, Spain, where the riders will take part in the seventh race of the season. Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo returns to the circuit where he has notched up four consecutive wins. With the form he is in, a fifth win is not out of the question.

His teammate and seven-time world champion Valentino Rossi is the master of the circuit, having won the Catalunya Grand Prix six times in the past. Honda's Marc Marquez will not have fond memories of the circuit after failing to finish in the top three last year.
