GP Germany – MotoGP 2016: Victory of Marc Marquez for the strategy at the Sachsenring


Shooting uncomfortable with rain tires, but took advantage of his
opportunity to be the first pilot in change of bike with slick tyres.
Marquez has taken victory in Sanchsenring
, reaching its seventh
consecutive victory at this track and fourth in MotoGP. The Catalan driver has given
a true lesson of strategy that has served him not only to win, but
also to endorse a good bag of points to Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. In
the chaos of a race
‘flag to flag’, Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso
have reached the podium at the German track

wet Conditions and rubber extrablanda of rain for all the favorites. These were the ingredients of the GP of Germany before turning off the light on the start / finish straight of the Sachsenring. Even with the pole to Marc Marquez of rigor, Valentino Rossi was the one who took the lead on the first lap, followed by Andrea Dovizioso, Danilo Petrucci and Marc. In this fight, and despite your first line, Hector Barbera lost some positions while Jack Miller curdled the best out of the grill after climbing to the sixth position in the blink of an eye.


Andrea Dovizioso took over from Rossi to the front of the race in
a new demonstration of the good performance of the Ducati in the wet and
that led to Danilo Petrucci to be a leader just one lap later,
position that coincided with the passing of Miller Marquez. Without
however, the maneuver of the australian pilot and the good pace of the three
front riders opened a small gap between the Yamaha’s of Rossi and the
mount Honda Jack Miller. A group of three, soon to be left in
two since
Danilo Petrucci went to the ground in a curve three.

Cross the first third of the race, the mistakes came in. Marc Marquez is going long on the curve 8, which had
fallen in the warm-up. The Spanish rider made up for the fall but lost several
positions. To the couple, the riders with tyre more hard rain
-lease Barbera, Miller, Crutchlow and Redding – earned in prominence until such
Hector Barbera ahead of Valentino Rossi for the second position.
Cal Crutchlow did the same with Dani Pedrosa, while the lane is dry
invited riders such as
Marc Marquez to pass by the pits to put on slicks.


The choice of Marc became the optimal any time you
I rode faster than Dovizioso, Rossi, Barbera , Crutchlow and Miller, the five
riders of head that did not fall to the pits. This fact provoked that
Marquez endosase
seven seconds to the quintet leader
, a difference that did fall from his error
Rossi, Dovizioso, Barbera and Crutchlow. The only rider who stayed on track
it was Jack Miller who kept his idea until the end in spite of the searing pace
the championship leader.
The logic is imposed and Marc Marquez placed leader
without further opposition
the australian, coming turns after to

In a lesson in strategic Marc Marquez got the
victory at the Sachsenring
, triumph also had a large revenue in the
championship with all of his rivals far behind. In fact,

Dovizioso completing the podium
after overtaking both Scott Redding in the two
last few laps. Andrea Iannone reached the fifth position followed by Pedrosa
and Miller.

after a weekend of disastrous in every way,
