2021 MotoGP Spanish GP – How to watch, session times & more

MotoGP travels to Jerez for the fourth round of the 2021 season. Here's the full schedule for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Yamaha has been the standout manufacturer of 2021 so far, with factory team riders Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales winning the first three races of the season between them.

By contrast, Ducati's start to the campaign has been rather underwhelming, although Franceso Bagnaia does hold second position in the riders' standings ahead of Vinales and Pramac rider Johann Zarco.

Suzuki's top speed pace deficit was evident in Qatar but the Japanese marque appeared much stronger in Portugal next time out, with Alex Rins running second before his crash and teammate Joan Mir finishing third.

Honda's prospects have been boosted by the return of Marc Marquez following a lengthy injury-induced break, with the Spaniard leading the RC213V contingent at Portimao.

How Marquez performs at Jerez, the scene of the crash that ruled him out of the entire 2020 season, will be one of the biggest talking points of this weekend.
