This is the 13th GP held at MotorLand Aragon. The track first hosted an event in 2010, becoming the sixth Spanish circuit
to do so after Jerez, Catalunya, Jarama, Montjuich and Valencia. Aragon is one of five anti-clockwise tracks on the
standard calendar, along with Austin, Sachsenring, Phillip Island and Valencia.

Honda’s last MotoGP win here: Marc Marquez in 2019 from pole. Honda is the most successful manufacturer here with
seven MotoGP wins: Casey Stoner in 2011, Dani Pedrosa in 2012 and Marc Marquez in 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.



Yamaha have three wins in MotoGP at MotorLand with Jorge Lorenzo in 2014 and 2015, and Franco Morbidelli in 2020/2
(Teruel).

Ducati’s only MotoGP win at Aragon: Casey Stoner won the first race at Aragon in 2010 from pole.

Since Stoner’s win in 2010, with Nicky Hayden also on the podium, Ducati have had five podiums: Cal Crutchlow (third in
2014), Jorge Lorenzo (third in 2017), Andrea Dovizioso (second in 2018 and ’19), and Jack Miller third in 2019.

Suzuki’s only MotoGP win at Aragon: Alex Rins at the 2020 Aragon GP.

Aprilia’s best result at MotorLand: sixth for Aleix Espargaro in 2017 and 2018. A sixth-place finish was Aprilia’s best
result in MotoGP (since 2002) until Aleix Espargaro finished third at the 2021 British GP.

KTM’s best result at MotorLand: fourth for Pol Espargaro in 2020/2 (Teruel).

Spanish riders are very successful across all classes at Aragon, winning 24 of the 36 races so far.

The only non-Spanish riders with a win at the circuit are Casey Stoner (MotoGP in 2010, 2011), Andrea Iannone (Moto2
in 2010), Romano Fenati (Moto3 in 2014), Miguel Oliveira (Moto3 in 2015), Sam Lowes (Moto2 in 2016, 2020/1,
2020/2), Franco Morbidelli (Moto2 in 2017 and MotoGP in 2020/2) and Brad Binder (Moto2 in 2018, 2019).

Casey Stoner’s victories, Andrea Dovizioso’s second place finishes in 2018 and 2019 and Franco Morbidelli’s win in
2020/2 the only times a non-Spanish rider has stood on the top two steps of the podium in MotoGP at Aragon.

Since 2010, only two riders have won the MotoGP race from pole at Aragon: Casey Stoner (2010, 2011) and Marc
Marquez (2013, 2016, 2019). Marquez has been on pole five out of seven times he’s raced in MotoGP™ at Aragon.

MotorLand Aragon is one of just five circuits where Valentino Rossi has raced in the premier class and not had a victory
along with Austin, the Red Bull Ring, Buriram and Istanbul.
