MotoGP returns to Mugello: preview and schedules of the 2021 Italian GP

After being left off the calendar in 2020 due to the pandemic, the World Cup returns to the Mugello Circuit. It will do so without an audience, which will make the atmosphere very different from the usual one with the crowded stands.

Day Event




Ducati arrives on a roll at the ‘home’ circuit. They come from two consecutive victories of Jack Miller and on this track they have prevailed in the last three editions disputed. Pecco Bagnaia lost the lead to Fabio Quartararo at Le Mans, but on home soil he will try to regain it with his first win in the premier class.

The three of them, along with Johann Zarco, Aleix Espargaró and Valentino Rossi have been summoned for the official press conference on Thursday at Mugello that will kick off the Grand Prix.

Jorge Martín will not be in the game this weekend either, but this time his place will be taken by Michele Pirro.

Where and how to watch the 2021 MotoGP Italian GP race

In Spain, the Italian Grand Prix will only be seen through one of the available payment platforms. The simplest thing is to subscribe to DAZN , which costs €9.99 per month or €99.99 per year and you can try a month for free with no commitment to stay.

If you have Movistar + contracted at home with the base mobile and landline package, you can add the Motor channels for an additional 10 euros and you will see the same DAZN content there.

The third option is to subscribe to the MotoGP VideoPass , which currently costs €105.99 and gives you access to all content until the first race of 2022. Of course, the narration is in English.

Mugello, the circuit of the 2021 Italian GP of MotoGP

The Mugello Circuit is located in the valley of Tuscany, 30 kilometers northeast of Florence. The track was built in 1973 and opened one later. It has been owned by Ferrari since 1988.

In 1976 it hosted its first Grand Prix and since 1991, after a profound remodeling, it has been part of the MotoGP calendar uninterruptedly until last year, due to COVID.
