Fabio Quartararo took the title of new “king” of Sachsenring, instead of the Spaniard Marc Márquez who has won continuously since 2013 in the MotoGP category, by clearly winning the German Grand Prix, ahead of his compatriot Johann Zarco and the Australian Jack Miller.
The Frenchman is more leader of the championship finish fourth his most direct rival, the Spanish Aleix Espargaróand one of the contenders for the title, the Italian Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia, did not achieve a single point, who went down when trying to keep up with the Frenchman’s rhythm.
With very harsh conditions due to the strong heat, the MotoGP race began with the reigning world champion, the Frenchman Fabio Quartararo, leading the way, surprising the author of the “pole position” in the first corner, the Italian Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia. But the race had only just begun and before the end of the first lap Bagnaia already tried to overtake Quartararoalthough the French returned the action almost instantly.
The laps passed and the leader of the world championship and current world champion had literally been left alone at the head of the race, with more than a second ahead of his immediate pursuer, his compatriot Johann Zarco and with Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñalesthe two Aprilia riders, in third and fourth place, while on that lap, the sixth, the Australian Jack Miller, was serving his “long lap” penalty and returned to the race in seventh place.

The differences remained very constant all the time, with Fabio Quartararo controlling the distance very well with respect to Johann Zarco, who tried hard to close the gap, while the Aprilia duo was approached from behind by the Australian Jack Miller, who twelve laps from the end got “hooked” on the slipstream of the Maverick Viñales motorcycle.
Yes Maverick Viñales retired with technical problemsin the case of Pol Espargaro it was for physical problems, not being able to breathe well after the strong blow to the side that was given during free practice. Aleix Espargaró had to settle for fourth place, with Jorge Martín sixth and Raúl Fernández twelfth.
