Clearly, the Portuguese GP is the only all-new event that wasn’t on the initial race schedule before the shake-up triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
And MotoGP has of course never raced at Portimao, with Estoril actually hosting the Portuguese GP between 2000-12.
Jarama hosted the inaugural Portuguese GP in 1987 despite the circuit being located north of Madrid in neighbouring Spain.
Mir actually completed his stunning world title charge by securing seventh place at last weekend’s Valencia GP
While Suzuki has also wrapped up the MotoGP teams’ title, it faces off against Ducati to complete a hat-trick of 2020 crowns
With both manufacturers level on points in the world constructors’ standings going into the Portuguese GP.
Focus will of course also definitely turn to both the Moto2 and Moto3 title fights which remain on a knife-edge.
The Portimao race will also mark the end of an era for a number of riders, including both Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow
Dovizioso is taking a MotoGP sabbatical next year with a view of returning to the grid in 2022, while Crutchlow will become Yamaha’s test rider in 2021.
Rossi will bid an emotional farewell to the factory Yamaha team as he switches to the Petronas SRT squad to swap places with Quartararo from next year.
KTM test rider Mika Kallio will make his first start of the season as he steps in at Tech3 with Iker Lecuona ruled out
MotoGP will run longer versions of the Friday practice sessions compared to its traditional schedule to provide riders with more time to familiarise themselves
Of course that’s definitely at the Portimao circuit as it is a new addition to the reshaped 2020 calendar.
The two practice sessions on Friday will actually run for 70 minutes each rather than the usual 45-minute period.
From Saturday onwards the weekend schedule reverts to its traditional format with a 45-minute practice session on Saturday morning.
However, Portimao is actually set for dry and sunny conditions throughout the weekend, with a small chance of rain.
