Aside from Qatar and Great Britain, the United States Grand Prix is ​​the first outdoor competition since the outbreak of the pandemic. It is somewhat remarkable that he is now moving forward because the situation in Texas remains precarious. However, the MotoGP motorcycle circus loves to go to the United States, a country with a storied history when it comes to Grand Prix racing. In the past, races have been held in Daytona, Laguna Seca or Indianapolis and drivers like Kenny Roberts, Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz have been big names on the Grand Prix circuit. Gone are the days when Americans made MotoGP unsafe. The late Nikki Hayden was the last American who could really make a stir in the royal class.

Fabio Quartararo hopes to line up with Hayden as MotoGP World Champion this season. During the US Grand Prix, the Frenchman could take another big step. He has a 48-point lead over Francesco Bagnaia, winner of the last two races. Quartararo and Bagnaia have had little MotoGP experience on the COTA circuit, and both have ridden once on the track. Alex Rains is the last winner on the track. He defeated Valentino Rossi in a fantastic duel two years ago, although both men needed a crash from Marc Marquez. Marquez will also focus on the success of One Day in Texas.
