Ducati is showing its rivals the strength of it’s engine this season as well, which will be especially evident on tracks with long straights such as the Red Bull ring in Austria, Catalunya in Barcelona and Ricardo Tormo in Valencia.
The Circuito de Jerez racetrack is 4428m long. It has 13 curves and the longest straight of 607 meters, which does not allow Moto GP bikes to develop their true maximum speeds, but we can gain some insight into which engines are stronger in acceleration compared to others.
We were able to see the dominance of Ducati when it comes to top speed, which may have allowed Francesco Bagnaia and Jack Miller to fight for the podium during the first part of the Andalucia GP, which they, unfortunately, ended in an unwanted way.
In the table below you can see the classification of all drivers and bikes by maximum speeds.
After each race weekend, we will release these statistics so you can stay up to date with the latest data. The next race will be held in Brno from August 7th to 9th.
