MotoGP 2018 continues today with the latest instalment of an explosive season so far about to take place at Jerez.
Last time out Marc Marquez came back from his disastrous race in the Argentine GP to win at the Circuit of the Americas.
The result meant the Repsol Honda star and defending champion managed to climb up the 2018 standings table, and is just one point behind leader Andrea Dovizioso.
Today, the four-time MotoGP champion will start fifth – with Britain’s Cal Crutchlow on pole position at Jerez.
Crutchlow, who was leading the championship earlier this season, is aiming to win his second MotoGP race of 2018.
On the front row lining up with him are Dani Pedrosa and Johann Zarco, while on the second row Marquez is joined up Jorge Lorenzo and Alex Rins.
Championship leader and Ducati wizard Dovizioso starts from eighth, while MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi is seventh.
Speaking ahead of today’s race, Crutchlow said he expects to be “rewarded” by Honda for his current form and hard work.
He said: “I have a two-year contract. And in the moment I’m happy with Honda.
“But there becomes a time in your life where you have to be rewarded for what you’re doing.”
Repsol Honda has re-signed Marquez for the next two years, but is believed to be considering whether or not to keep Pedrosa.
If the Spaniard moves on, then it opens the door for Crutchlow to get a factory seat.
Zarco had been rumoured to be one of Honda’s choices for next season, but the talented Frenchman will be with KTM in 2019.
