The German Grand Prix will be taking place this weekend and after a series of fruitless tests, Repsol Honda Team riders Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro will be taking a chance in redeeming themselves.
The MotoGP World Championship will continue with its next event in Sachsenring for the first time since 2019. The 3.7-kilometre-long circuit known for its tight layout and 10 left-hand corners. In the past, it has been a happy hunting ground for the Repsol Honda Team who have won there each year since 2010, but the focus this year remains on improving on recent results and finding the form the team is accustomed to.
The weekend begins with Free Practice 1 at 09:55 Local Time on Friday, June 18 with the flag for the 30-lap race on Sunday dropping at 14:00 Local Time on June 20. Immediately after the race, the Repsol Honda Team will travel to Assen for the following round.
Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team)- What to Expect?
“After the test day in Barcelona, the week between races went very well to recover. In this test, we worked a lot and now we come to the Sachsenring where I have always enjoyed riding in the past. This year of course we arrive in a different position, but hopefully, the layout should allow us to be more competitive from the physical side. Let’s see what the weekend brings.”
Pol Espargaro (Repsol Honda Team)- What to Expect?
“We arrive here in Germany after a good day of testing in Spain. It has been a hard few races so it is important to keep our focus and do what we can this weekend. The Honda has been strong here in the past and with what we found in the test I hope that we can make some steps forward. Everything in MotoGP is so close so even a small improvement will help a lot, especially on Saturdays. We now have two races before the summer break, we want to head into the break on a positive.”
