Sergio García Dols ( 11th in the general classification with 5 points)
        
In his second season in the World Championship, Sergio Garcia Dols rode at the same pace as the top riders in Qatar, although on the final laps he had to settle for a more discreet 11th place.

During months of confinement with his family in his hometown of Burriana, the Spanish rider has managed to maintain an intense training routine that ensures that he resumes the competition in the best possible way.

“I have been looking forward to competing again. Having finished last year winning my first Grand Prix and this season stopping as soon as it started, I’ve been eager to give my best. It's time to get back on track and continue our progression. I am glad that the return to racing is at Jerez. Although the atmosphere will be very different from what we enjoyed before the global health emergency, it is a circuit with which I am very familiar. Wednesday's test will allow us to come in even better prepared for the opening Free Practice sessions for the Grand Prix.”

Ryusei Yamanaja  (20th in the general classification)
        
After taking 20th place in Qatar, Yamanaka saw his first season as a permanent rider in the Moto3 World Championship truncated by the global pandemic.

He has also spent the lockdown in the company of his family, and now faces the return to competition at a track where he has previous experience thanks to his participation in the FIM CEV Repsol last year.

"All of the riders are eager to return to action, and this first round at Jerez will certainly be very important for getting a feel for the competition again. At least the test on Wednesday will allow us to familiarise ourselves with the conditions of the track, as well as resuming the work schedule with my crew. It's time to continue learning from the best on the track. Despite the difficulties that have been experienced at all levels in recent months, I hope that we will quickly return to normality and enjoy a great season.”
