Jorge Lorenzo arrives at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona looking for his fourth consecutive win of the season Getty

With three back-to-back wins Jorge Lorenzo clearly comes in as one of the favourites, as the MotoGP juggernaut rolls into the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

Valentino Rossi is the master at this circuit with six wins, but his teammate has also won three times, which could make it yet another battle between the teammates, who are also going head-to-head in the championship.

Marc Marquez endured a frustrating weekend in Spain, which eventually culminated in the Spaniard crashing out of the race in Italy after trying to push too hard to catch the in-form Lorenzo, who annihilated the field at Mugello.

Riders' Championship review

Jorge Lorenzo has cut the gap at the top of the leader board to just six points after three consecutive wins, but Valentino Rossi is putting in consistent performances to maintain his slim lead over the rest of the pack.

The nine-times World Champion has turned back time this season with some vintage performances and with Catalunya being amongst his favourite circuits, he could be in line for yet another Rossi special.

Marc Marquez is not having the best of seasons, with the two-time world champion 49-points off the leader, and in fifth place having won just one race all season.

The Ducati duo of Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone are right up there with the Yamaha and Honda in second and third respectively, as they battle for third place with two points separating the Italians.
