Motorbike rider Stefan Bradl will make his second appearance of the current MotoGP season this weekend in Jerez/Spain.

The Honda test rider will compete in the sixth round of the world championship on Sunday (14.00) with a wildcard, the Japanese factory team announced.

Bradl (32) had last replaced former series world champion Marc Marquez (29) in Termas de Rio Hondo/Argentina, finishing 19th as the Spaniard had to sit out due to eye problems.

Marquez was fit again for the following race in Austin/Texas. Last year, the former Moto2 champion Bradl (Zahling) made five appearances.
