    2021 MotoGP

    The provisional calendar will see the opening race of the season take place in Qatar, our usual opening Grand Prix venue at the end of March. After a weekend off the MotoGP™ circus heads to Argentina and America on the 11th and 18th of April before the European leg begins – as usual – at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto on the 2nd of May.

    France, Italy, Catalunya, Germany, Netherlands and – subject to homologation – Finland will lead us to the 11th of July, with the next venue on the list currently down as TBC. If the provisional calendar becomes the final one, then Austria and Great Britain host MotoGP™ races in August, before the Aragon and San Marino rounds take place in September.

    Then, hopefully, it’s time for the flyaway races. Japan and Thailand will be back-to-back on the 3rd and 10th of October, before Australia and Malaysia get underway on the 24th and 31st of October. And then, after a weekend off, the grand finale will be held in Valencia on the 14th of November as another season draws to a close in eastern Spain.

    See below for the full provisional 2021 calendar:

    Are we likely to see cancellations given the virus is still out there?

    Marquez back on a bike yet?

      More than likely will see changes, who knows what will happen, the world is crazy at this point!
      Marquez still recovering, hasn't been on a bike yet, but has worn his leathers!

          Marquez is still in recovery and word is he wont be fit for the first or second round. So that does leave alot of doubt around fitness and also the fact he has missed so much racing and also all the preseason testing.

          Another crazy year for sure. Jack is at Ducati factory so watch out for some god performances by him. Suzuki have made the leap to the big stage based on consistency and providing a ridable bike in a wide range of conditions. that suited last year as they were basically racing in the autumn in some countries. It really reminded me of Yamaha's early Rossi days, where they were focused on all round performance and not outright hp or speed.

          Honda will have a tough year without a good test rider and some direction from some established talent that can point to issues easily. They have Alex Marquez and Taka, but they're both relatively young. Pol will do well but we still dont know who Marquez' replacement will be.

            Pol needs to stop the spoilt brat behaviour that he is consistent with for him to get anywhere.

                Poor Marquez, not looking good for this year "if" he is fit enough to ride

                      It's just not the same without him out there is it?
                      Don't get me wrong, there was heaps of good races last year, but nowhere near the entertainment value without his displays of craziness!
                      Makes me wonder if all that will be tamed down , when he finally does get back out on track, due to the seriousness of the current injury??

                        I definitely think we will see a different MM93 when he next gets on the bike. The experiences he has gone through since Jerez last year change how your brain is wired, and as crazy as he is, he is still human.

                        The reality is that if his brain stops his body doing the things we have all got so used to seeing over the past 8 years, then he only needs to lose 5% performance, for the whipper snappers to be hot on his heels.

                        Time will tell, I guess...

                        Interesting to see that Davide Brivio has left Suzuki, apparently to go to F1, so that will shake up thr stability of last years championship winning team. How much is anyones guess, but stability is stability.

                        I cant wait to see Jack on the factory Ducati, with all the technical backing that comes with it.

                        Cant help but feel that Franky is going to be one to watch, given he will be on the "best" Yamaha out there. If I was Rossi, I would be screaming for the same bike too, although we all know that he wont do that.

                        Sadly, the season will be nothing like what is originally planned...Covid will put paid to that, but as with 2020, I will be grateful for whatever racing they can manage to put on for us.

                        BRING IT ON!!!

                          Marc may become a different rider entirely, with the new guys pushing hard though it could also lead to him pushing harder - who knows. Will be an interesting season! Will it be Vale's last?

                          Not a fan of Pol.. Morbidelli will be interesting to watch.

                          Factory Yamaha team - not sure what to think there. Too inconsistent last year (for both riders, noting 1/4raro was on the B team).

                            While Marc is the most entertaining rider to watch.
                            Fuck, I would pay to watch in lap by himself

                            Last year was enjoyable with the unpredictability of who was going to be on the podium, win, etc.

                            hopefully Miller can race the whole race this year rather than running out of grip

                              Agree with all this.
                              I reckon it will be pretty close to Rossi calling it a day, especially if his form is as shit as the last few years.
                              I can't take to Pol either, he's a bit of a sooky bitch.
