Spanish sports fans were always going to be split down the middle this weekend, on the occasion of the latest edition of El Clasico the football derby between Barcelona and Real Madrid that customarily dominates the attentions of the national press.

The biggest all-Spanish clash on Sunday, however,is expected to take place at the front of the MotoGP race. Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa will line up alongside one another at the head of the grid and in front of the passionate Spanish fans, and are hot contenders for the victory at the track where they both placed on the podium in 2008.

The duo were famously coerced into a handshake by the Spanish King at last year's event, but their rivalry remains. A chink of the cava bottles on the Motegi rostrum last weekend showed their mutual respect, but poleman Lorenzo appears convinced that he could not only leave Jerez with trophies and points there is also the affections of the fans at stake.

Incredible picture. Backend high in the air. Even the pianostrip has excellent grip. Must have been different in the days of Doohans career-ending practice-run.
Dani amazes us on a regular basis. I secretly think this man is probably the most talented of them all.
Let the race begin.
Not that I can see it. Neither Speed nor ESPN is showing it in Central America.
