MotoGP returns to the United States just one week after a dramatic Argentina GP weekend, which was won by Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro - marking his first grand prix win and the first for Aprilia in the modern era.

It was a weekend plagued by delays, after freight problems forced Friday's action to be cancelled.

MotoGP last raced at the Circuit of the Americas in October 2021, but returns to its usual calendar slot of April.

After his Argentina win, Espargaro leads the championship coming into the COTA race by seven points from KTM's Brad Binder.

After missing the Argentina GP, six-time world champion Marc Marquez will return to action having recovered sufficiently from the vision problems he sustained in the crash which ruled him out of the Indonesian round.
