Q2 was another morality play in reverse, in which the swarthy underdog played by Danilo Petrucci who had never won a premier class pole sat in first position, owning the new track record, as the checkered flag waved.
His impending problem was that Marquez, the fair-haired boy conqueror, had successfully started his final lap before the flag fell.
During what felt like injury time in soccer, Marquez survived three separate wobbles to lay down a 1: And putting the staff here at 5-for-7 for the season, hitting.
There it is again. Nine straight poles in Germany. Marquez looked utterly capable of dominating the proceedings on Sunday, especially if he were to enter Turn 1 of the first lap leading the pack.
Iannone, doing a good Snidely Whiplash impression with his new stash, could manage no better than 8th after blistering the field twice in practice.
This track is tight and moving through traffic is as difficult as anywhere on the calendar. Other than the mayhem leading up to the race, the German grand prix was a bit of a snooze.
The carnage started on Friday, when Mika Kallio , on a KTM wildcard, took a header into an inflatable wall followed closely by his bike.
He sustained a serious knee injury which, it appears, will end his season. During the morning warm-up on Sunday, Aleix Espargaro attempted to launch his Aprilia into a low earth orbit, sustaining a chest injury that kept him out of the race.
Franco Morbidelli gave his bad wrist a try on Friday before calling it a weekend, the team calling upon Stefan Bradl to sit in for him.
With his fourth-place finish in Assen, he scored his th point in the class. In Sachsenring, he will be aiming to become the 15th rider to reach the milestone of points scored in Grand Prix racing.
Following the Dutch TT, he has points. Yamaha riders have not won since Assen last season with Valentino Rossi 18 successive races , equalling their longest sequence without a win since the race sequence that included the last two races of and the 16 races of In addition, Yamaha haven been on the podium for the last 11 races, which is their longest podium sequence without a win in the MotoGP era.
Hafizh Syahrin, his closest rival in the fight for Rookie of the Year, failed to score any points — meaning Morbidelli is still leading the Rookie of the Year classification with 19 points.
Tom Lüthi, who made his first Grand Prix appearance at this track in , is the only other of the five rookies to have stood on the podium at the Sachsenring: The German Grand Prix at the Sachsenring will be the 80th Grand Prix event to be held on the German soil and the 21st successive year at the new Sachsenring.
The following are some interesting statistics about Grand Prix motorcycle racing in Germany. The first motorcycle Grand Prix to be held in Germany was the West German Grand Prix held at the Solitude circuit in , when it was reported that , spectators turned up to watch.
The original circuit used for this event was a closed road circuit, 8. The East German GP continued to be held at the Sachsenring each year until , after which the original road circuit was considered too dangerous for Grand Prix racing.
Four different circuits were used during this period from to Solitude, Schotten, the Nürburgring and Hockenheim.
There has been a German Grand Prix held every year since unification; from to at Hockenheim followed by three years at the Nürburgring before it moved to the new Sachsenring circuit in In addition to those mentioned above, one other Grand Prix event has been held in Germany: The newly built Sachsenring was initially just 3.
Major modifications to the circuit in and then additional alterations in resulted in the current 3. The Sachsenring is one of just five circuits on the current Grand Prix schedule that run in an anti-clockwise direction, along with Austin, Aragon, Phillip Island and Valencia.
A total of Grand Prix races for solo motorcycles have been held at the Sachsenring since as follows: MotoGP —16, cc—16, cc—11, Moto2 —8, cc—24, Moto3 —6, cc—26, 50cc—5.
The best result by a German rider in the premier class at the Sachsenring since racing returned to the circuit in is second for Jonas Folger last year.

He rarely beats himself. The only thing left to add to his vast array of tools and skills is the chin slider, which will complete the mosaic of rider, bike and track.
Pramac Ducati tough guy Danilo Petrucci , who arrived in the Netherlands fifth in the world. His luckless weekend ended when he crashed out of, like, 13th position on Lap He is now tied for eighth with Andrea Iannone.
He was doing great before we pointed out that he was doing great. Sure, some writers would call this a rounding error and improve their stats by declaring it practically a win.
I go from 4-for-5 to 4-for-6 — hitting. Still, track records are getting challenged almost every time out. One keeps hearing whispers that Pedrosa may, in fact, still retire, which would reportedly elevate one Alvaro Bautista to second chair, the boy toy once again landing on his feet in an unbelievable way.
Loyal readers will recall that Bautista, loathed by Italian Fausto Gresini in , was on his way out the MotoGP door until Marco Simoncelli lost his life in Sepang , leaving Gresini without a rider at all heading into and forcing him to swallow the alliance with the Spanish narcissist Bautista.
Pretty sure it will be Pedrosa and Morbidelli. Scott Redding will likely choose half a loaf and agree to testing with Aprilia. In case another full-grown rider comes along some day.
Perhaps the factory team. Jorge Martinez seems to have bought himself two years to find another gig.
Suzuki needs a satellite team like now, as their concessions, as of next year, appear to be toasting. And Ducati must have wanted to trim the roster; what better place to start than the shoestring operation that is Team Angel Nieto , and its deluxe duo of riders, Karel Abraham and Alvaro Bautista.
If and when the grid returns to 24 riders, I fully expect the newbies to be these speed merchants from Moto2 and Moto3 , guys like Jorge Martin , Lorenzo Baldassarri , and Xavier Vierge.
These guys, with their reflexes and aggressiveness, will likely enjoy success in MotoGP, since the bikes are getting better and better, closer and closer.
Guys will be able to make reputations in a hurry in the next years. Leading the chase for, you know, second place.
If you believe that a win on Sunday for 93 is inevitable, the most you can hope for are interesting weather and track conditions. Like your basic life sandwich, your only real choice is whether you want it on wheat or white.
Alas, writing on Monday, rain is in the forecast until Thursday, when perfect conditions take over — high 70s and sunny all weekend. Honda is the most successful manufacturer at the Sachsenring circuit since racing returned to it in with 14 wins, including the last eight victories for Marc Marquez.
Yamaha have had four wins in the premier class since at the Sachsenring, with two different riders: Valentino Rossi and Max Biaggi. Ducati have won only once in the premier class at the Sachsenring, with Casey Stoner back in Ducati have had five other podium finishes at the track in the premier class: Troy Bayliss was third in , Loris Capirossi second in , Casey Stoner third in and Dovizioso third last year.
The only win for a Suzuki rider at the Sachsenring was in the cc race in with Kenny Roberts Jr. Honda riders have also qualified on pole for the German GP for the last seven years; the last non-Honda rider to start from pole for a MotoGP race at the Sachsenring was Jorge Lorenzo in on a Yamaha.
The eight Moto2 races that have taken place in Sachsenring have been won by seven different riders: The six Moto3 races that have taken place at the Sachsenring have been won by six different riders: Only two of them have not been won from pole position: Khairul Idham Pawi and Joan Mir Stoner won 38 races in the premier class while Marquez has now won Dani Pedrosa finished the Dutch TT in 15th place, crossing the line just This breaks the record set earlier this year in Qatar.
The following list shows the ten closest top 15 finishes of all-time in the premier class of Grand Prix racing, seven of which have occurred since only races that have completed full race distance are considered for inclusion in the following table.
Then, the average age of the three riders was 22 years days. Each of them went on to win the title each year.

In Germany, he will be aiming to become the first Speed Up rider to be on the podium three times in a row. He crashed out of the race last year in Germany on the fifth lap at Turn 2, breaking his C5 and C6 vertebrae.
Marcel Schrötter finished fourth in Assen, equalling his best result from France and Barcelona earlier this year.
