It seems unusual to suggest that the reigning world champion is under pressure and in need of a victory in just the third race of the season, but that is how impressive Maverick Vinales has been so far.

Marc Marquez sits 37 points behind his fellow Spaniard already, having not finished on the podium in either Qatar or Argentina and continuing his underwhelming form since winning the 2016 crown.

The three-time world champion has only claimed 38 championship points in the five races since securing the title at the Japanese Grand Prix last year.

But if there is one track that Marquez could hand pick for the next race, to hopefully get his season going, it would be the Circuit of the Americas where he has been unbeatable.

In the four years that this circuit has been part of the MotoGP calendar only one man has topped the podium – Marquez. He’s also won all eight of his premier class races on US soil, so won’t head to Texas short of confidence.

Equally, the man he is chasing down boasts a similarly impressive record having finished as runner-up in Moto3 back in 2013, before topping the podium a year later in Moto2 and has secured ninth and fourth place finishes in the last two years in MotoGP.

So while Marquez will undoubtedly be confident of a fifth straight success here, the pretender to his crown will be quietly optimistic of maintaining his blistering start to life on the Yamaha.

The formbook would seem to suggest a straight fight between the two young Spanish riders, but another of their countrymen will hope to have a say in Sunday’s proceedings.

Marquez’s Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa, who has had an equally difficult start to the season, has come away with a 20-point haul both times he has finished at the COTA.

A mistake saw Pedrosa crash out of contention in 2016, as it did for another potential contender and perennial race day specialist, Valentino Rossi who appears to be getting closer to the required pace in Austin and could yet upset the odds.

Franco Morbidelli joined esteemed company in three-time world champion Jorge Lorenzo after becoming the first rider since the Spartan, back in 2007, to win the opening two races of the Moto2 season.

The Italian has been in fine form since leaving Texas last year, failing to pick up points in just one race since then, but will need to improve significantly on his 14th place finish last year.

Brad Binder will not be racing in the intermediate class however, with the reigning Moto3 world champion recovering from surgery and will be replaced by Ricky Cardus on the Red Bull KTM Ajo bike.

The Moto3 season has seen even more success for the leading party with Joan Mir, John McPhee and Jorge Martin standing on the podium in both races so far.

McPhee and the British Talent Team have made an impressive start and the Scottish rider will be aiming to improve on his sixth place finish in Austin two years ago, his best result on this track.
