Martin Secures Back-to-Back Wins at French and German Grand Prix
The Pramac Ducati rider, Jorge Martin, showcased his exceptional racing skills by securing two sprint wins at the French and German Grand Prix. He added a second win to his tally in Germany after taking the chequered flag 2.4 seconds clear of the chasing pack.
It was an intense battle for pole position between Bagnaia and Miller. Still, it was Miller who powered ahead with his KTM rocket into Turn 1 before being overtaken by reigning world champion Bagnaia as they exchanged overtakes through Turns 7 and 8.
However, on lap four of fifteen down the hill into Turn 12, Martin made a decisive move nailing his drive through Turn 11 to take the lead from Miller and Bagnaia. Despite running wide into Turn 12, he kept hold of first place throughout the race.
Martin’s immediate lead continued to grow over time until he crossed the finish line victorious with a comfortable gap of 2.4s ahead of championship leader Bagnaia. Meanwhile, Miller completed third place on the podium just behind second-place getter Bagnaia.
Binder Forced off Track but No Further Action Taken
KTM’s Brad Binder had been battling fiercely for fourth place but ultimately had to settle for sixth after Zarco aggressively forced him off track at Turn11 during an overtake maneuver towards Johann Zarco who ended up finishing fifth.
The incident was investigated by stewards; however no further action taken against either rider involved or any penalization applied since it has been classified as part of normal gameplay within MotoGP standards
Marc Marquez Suffers Worst Ever MotoGP Race Finish
The Honda rider, Marc Marquez, suffered his worst ever MotoGP race finish at the Sachsenring after starting from seventh following three crashes in qualifying. He briefly moved up to fifth place in the early stages but could do nothing to stop his slide down to 11th at the chequered flag.
Having won eleven grands prix in succession and nine in a row during his career, it seems highly unlikely that this run will continue on Sunday as he finished outside of the top ten for the first time since joining MotoGP back in 2013.
Jorge Martin’s impressive performance has secured him second place behind Bagnaia, just 21 points behind him. With only four rounds remaining before the end of season, we can expect more exciting races ahead with intense battles for pole position and podium finishes.
