Dani Pedrosa's lap of Jerez.

"These are the two most important corners of the Jerez Circuit. It is very difficult to overtake there because you are at more than 200 km/h, and it's definitely not a good place to crash. After Turn 12 there is the angle before the start/finish straight, difficult and very important."

Turn 13, 'Ducados':
"It has different lines and it makes a difference whether you arrive there with a rider in front or behind. Also, the acceleration when coming out of the corner is crucial in the last lap if you're being followed by other riders. This corner has a difficult entry and exit."

Main straight:
"If you come out of the last corner badly you may be overtaken on the finish line. It is a small straight and you hardly have any time to rest on the MotoGP bike. You have to get ready almost immediately to brake for the first corner."
